Last week, a survey sponsored by tech giant Dell revealed that with 8 million women-led businesses, the United States is the best country in the world for female entrepreneurship.

The trend is encouraging and it’s gaining attention in Memphis as more local programs and training opportunities become available to encourage and support female entrepreneurship.
