Tammy Dowley-Blackman Group, LLC

Cooper + Lowe

A B2B incubator for women interested in transitioning to entrepreneurship and thought leadership platforms.

Women’s Entrepreneurship Landscape

  • Female entrepreneurs represent the fastest growing category of entrepreneurship worldwide
  • Black women’s entrepreneurship has doubled over the past decade
  • Women account for 42% of all U.S. Businesses
  • Women-owned businesses generate $1.9 trillion in annual revenues

Women’s Entrepreneurship Context

  • The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor report rated the enabling environment for women entrepreneurs very poorly in most countries. This may explain why women have a slightly lower perception of entrepreneurship as a career choice compared to men.
  • National Experts taking part in the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor research indicate there continues to be insufficient cultural support for female entrepreneurs. It is important to celebrate and promote successful women founders as role models.
  • There are excellent resources available to women interested in entrepreneurship, but research indicates a demand for accessing the real-time experience and tools developed by proven women entrepreneurs. Women embarking on entrepreneurship and thought leadership are seeking help translating theoretical to implementation.

I know how difficult it is to start and grow a business, particularly for those that have never done it before. I appreciate that Tammy has created Cooper + Lowe as an early-stage incubator and B2B marketplace in response to the request by women who have sought her help – wanting to learn and train with her, a woman entrepreneur with a proven track record of starting businesses from scratch without access to capital, a network, or business systems.
