ICC is featured as a Top 100 Women-Owned Business in Colorado

ICC June 28, 2023 0 Comments

ICC, a disruptor in the areas of leadership development training, executive coaching and outplacement services has just been named a 2023 Top 100 Women-Owned Business in Colorado. Check out the digital version and all the winners here.  

“We are thrilled to have earned a spot on this list of the heavy-hitting women-owned businesses in Colorado for a tenth time in the years of service to our clients!” said Susan Ruhl, President and CFO.

What does it mean to be a women-owned company?

Formally, it means that 51% of a business is owned, controlled, operated, or managed by a woman or women. At ICC, 100% of the business is woman-owned. The company, founded in 2010, was co-created by Susan Ruhl, President, CFO, and Shawna Simcik, President of Business Leadership.

Not just in Colorado but across the US, women are rising to new levels of success as entrepreneurs, leaders, and contributors to their communities. Women are some of the most powerful, successful people on the face of the planet, and rightfully so. Check out a few of the numbers related to the current state of the women-owned business sector.

    • There are more than 12.3 million women-owned businesses in the U.S. 

    • These companies generate more than $1.8 trillion each year.

    • Women-owned companies make up 39% of all privately held organizations.

    • Women-owned businesses employ more than 9 million people.

    • 8% of the employment rate is due to women-owned businesses.

    • Women-owned businesses account for 4.2% of all revenues.

    • 40% of all businesses in the U.S. are owned by women.

    • Private tech companies that are run by women have ROIs that are 35% higher than average.

    • Women receive only 7% of all venture funds, which is why specialty programs are in high demand.

“ICC is so incredibly proud to be a part of this dynamic group of powerful woman-owned businesses,” Ruhl states. Shawna Simcik adds, “As we look back at the harm that the COVID-19 pandemic has wrought upon women’s employment trends, this award is much more important to our business and the State of Colorado. This cannot be a “do-nothing” scenario, we must highlight the success of women to reverse this trend and set the stage for the future generations. Thanks to the ColoradoBiz magazine for continuing to highlight Women to Watch for those who often go unnoticed.”
