March is Women’s History Month and Amazon is celebrating the extraordinary women-owned small businesses partnering with them to provide their millions of customers with innovative and necessary products.
Amazon provides women around the globe with entrepreneurial opportunities. You may not know that over half of all products purchased on Amazon are sold by small and medium businesses and, according to a recent Amazon poll, 48% of these businesses selling on Amazon.com are woman-owned.
To celebrate these women-owned businesses for International Women’s Day and throughout the month of March, Amazon launched a new site to help customers discover the stories and products of inspiring women who are working with Amazon to grow their businesses – including small business sellers, authors, Alexa developers, and Delivery Service Partners.
Customers can also shop products from women-owned businesses handpicked by inspirational and influential celebrities Diane von Furstenberg, Mindy Kaling, and Keke Palmer.
Three By Three, a local woman-owned small business, is one of the companies Amazon is featuring this month. Co-Founders Gwen Weinberg and Anita Nadelson shared more about this big opportunity to support women-owned small businesses like theirs on Amazon.
