Women-Owned Businesses

More than half of the women-owned businesses returning to our list of them this week reported a higher number of employees than they did in 2012.

And of the businesses we surveyed, 73 percent said they plan to hire in the next six to 12 months. Nearly half of those indicated they’d be hiring to increase staff, as opposed to maintaining current staffing levels.

Hundreds of women in the area seek to start their own businesses every year, according to Marcia Stevens, regional director of the Kansas Small Business Development Center, interviewed in a related article by Josh Heck.

Readers can now view a sample of our weekly lists online, while subscribers can see the full digital lists.
