A new logo program will empower those who want to support women-owned businesses at big box stores like Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club.
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), Sam’s Club, WEConnect International and Walmart have partnered to design a logo to make people aware of the high-quality, unique products that are coming from these women-owned businesses.
The following appeared on the Virgin Startup blog in July 2015:
At Virgin StartUp we proudly celebrate female entrepreneurs. Through our commitment to diversity and events such as Virgin #WOW we’ve seen the number of women receiving loans increasing and increasing – in May, we reached a point where we the number of women receiving Virgin StartUp loans was the same as the number of men.
