Are you a woman business owner looking to give your business an edge? Women are starting businesses at a rate 150 percent higher than the national average, and if each female entrepreneur hired just one person, the U.S. would add 8 million jobs. To fully unlock your potential as an entrepreneur, sign up for OPEN for Women: CEO BootCamp from American Express OPEN.

Seeking to build on the accomplishments of women entrepreneurs, the CEO BootCamp program aims to build three fundamental pillars for success: confidence, competence and connections.

“CEO BootCamp will help [participants] work on the business rather than in the business through highly focused programs that will help entrepreneurs identify growth opportunities that have an impact on local communities while contributing to the U.S. economy,” said Susan Sobbott, president of American Express OPEN.

CEO BootCamp will kick off with an all-day summit September 20, 2013, at the American Express auditorium in New York City. Registration for OPEN for Women: CEO BootCamp is open to all women entrepreneurs, regardless of industry, size or revenue. Further information on the September 20th summit is available here.
