Make Mine a Million

The Make Mine a Million Business Competitions

Count Me In held 40 Make Mine a Million $ Business competitions across the country. The purpose of the competitions was to inspire women to grow their micro businesses to a million dollar companies.

Thousands joined us to pitch, learn and win prizes in coaching, marketing and low interest loans. Hundreds reached the goal of $1 million and dozens went on to grow multi million dollar business that they have sold for more millions.

When we started the movement to a million in 2005 the U.S Census reported 100,000 women owned companies with more than a million in gross revenue. Today there are over 500,000 women generating over a million in business revenue.
