Closing the Gender Gap In Small Business Finance


Women’s empowerment is at the forefront of America’s cultural trends. Our constant push for change extends to many fronts, including small business lending. There are 12.3 million women-owned businesses in the US that generate over $1.8 trillion in revenues and employ millions of workers. Yet women business owners still have a harder time securing loan approvals. This session will share ideas on how your bank can:

  • Strengthen its reputation and build out gender equality in small business lending
  • Help women entrepreneurs overcome financial challenges while starting (and growing) a business
  • Drive new business and deepen customer loyalty
