As part of its ongoing commitment to support female entrepreneurs, Visa has launched a global initiative—She’s Next, Empowered by Visa—to support women small business owners as they build, sustain and advance their businesses. The global rate of female entrepreneurship has been increasing more quickly than that of male entrepreneurs, with more than 163 million women around the world starting a business since 2014.¹ She’s Next, will champion this growing trend, with additional support from leading small business advocates, including Square and Yelp.
She’s Next x Female Founder Collective
She’s Next, will be supported by the Female Founder Collective (FFC)—a network of businesses led by women, supporting women. From streamlining payment methods to linking women small business owners with like minded peers and experts, together She’s Next and Female Founder Collective will offer unmatched resources and opportunities for women entrepreneurs.
Nearly three-quarters of women starting businesses report difficulty in obtaining financing and more than 60 percent say they are self-funded. Based on these learnings, we partnered with JPMorgan Chase to offer up the seven best practices to help secure a business loan.
