Speaking Startup: Gauging the pandemic’s toll on women entrepreneurs

Early numbers on job losses resulting from the coronavirus suggest women in the labor force have been hit especially hard by the pandemic. But what about women business owners?

In this week’s episode of the Speaking Startup podcast, we look at how women entrepreneurs in Missouri are faring in the face of COVID-19.

Plus, as protests across the country have brought attention to police brutality and systemic racism, some people have sought ways to support black-owned businesses. We checked in with African American entrepreneurs in Kansas City to see how their businesses are holding up and get a sense of the challenges black entrepreneurs face.


The Speaking Startup podcast explores news and issues important to Missouri entrepreneurs. Find more Speaking Startup on our website or wherever you get podcasts.
