)-- The San Francisco Bay Area has seen a significant growth in start-ups and small businesses in recent years. Although the percentage of male run businesses far exceed the formation of female run businesses, there is a subgroup of individuals who experience the most trials when it comes time to acquire funding, seeking educational resources and general business support. This group of highly underestimated individuals are Single Mothers; and the new networking and support community, The Single Mama's Business Network, vows to change the world's perception of the social and economic contributions many single mothers are making through business.
The Single Mama's Business Network (SMBN) launches March 15, 2016 and opens its virtual doors to San Francisco Bay Area single mothers in business and those who are just starting out. Providing educational resources and a community driven support system; members of the network gain access to workshops, courses, business and personal needs referrals.
“I believe the presence of the SMBN is crucial to the vitality and growth of women-owned businesses in the Bay Area. Single mothers, such as myself, are often not recognized for our ingenuity, innovation and ability to create change in our respective areas. This is an opportunity for single mothers to gather, discuss and mastermind on all things business development, well-being, parenting and life in general,” said Kenya Moses, SMBN Founder and President.
Women entrepreneurs start approximately 1,300 businesses and The Single Mama's Business Network strives to shift the perception of single mothers by provide the support and resources to build thriving businesses that foster growth and positive contributions to their communities.
