For the past 7 years, the Women Presidents' Organization (WPO) has published an annual list of the top 50 fastest-growing companies that are either owned or led by women. The non-profit organization was formed to improve business conditions for women entrepreneurs. In publishing the annual top 50 list, they are also promoting the advancement of women entrepreneurs in all industries.
What the top 50 list means
The top 50 list is certainly a coup for women business leaders who are among the top 50. But it is also about what these women leaders are doing to create jobs and improve the economy. Consider these facts about the impact their businesses have made:
- Generated $4.9 billion in combined 2013 revenues
- Employed 22,000 people
- 90 percent of the women on the list founded their own businesses
- Total combined revenue of the 2014 winning companies grew by an impressive 53 percent
