Main Street is home to women entrepreneurs. Take a look around our downtowns and you will see women are running businesses – many of which create a sense of vibrancy to a transforming area.  Women-owned businesses make up 36% of the businesses in the US and 99% of these are considered small businesses. Main street can offer a sense of community for new small businesses. These businesses are often retail, service and customer experience oriented.
