LaSata hosts women’s small business roundtable

LANSING, Mich. State Sen. Kim LaSata on Friday hosted Southwest Michigan women small business owners for a roundtable discussion.

“Michigan is one of the top five states for women to start a small business and is home to more than 29,000 women-owned small businesses that provide jobs to over a quarter-million people,” said LaSata, R-Bainbridge Township. “I was honored and humbled to have met with such strong leaders from our Southwest Michigan community and to discuss the important role women-owned businesses play in our state and economy.

“I look forward to continuing this dialogue and working together to increase opportunities for women in business and aid in the enhancement of entrepreneurial development across our state.”

On Tuesday, the Senate unanimously adopted LaSata’s Senate Resolution 86, which recognizes October 2019 as Women’s Small Business Month and encourages residents to support women-owned small businesses.
