to the first issue of the Shop Women Owned newsletter. We’re glad you’re here and are joining us in supporting women business owners and managers in Colorado and beyond. The newsletter, sent monthly, will include resources and information for owners, as well as, news on businesses who have recently claimed their listing on the Shop Women Owned website.
A little about SWO
When launched in May 2016, Shop Women Owned listed more than 126,000 Colorado women-owned businesses. As we close in our first year, we want to thank businesses who have submitted information to update their listing on the site by sending logos, images, text and even video. These enhanced listings benefit all businesses on the site by helping to increase traffic. Check out this great example of what your listing could look like!
Included on the website are not only retail businesses, but restaurants, tech companies, service-based businesses in a variety of industries – everything from salons to construction – to preschools, medical practices, and more. You’ll also find businesses of all sizes – from small home-based businesses to large, multi-million dollar companies and we encourage you to “shop” them all.
