25 Top Women Business Builders

Fast Company magazine states in its May 2005 issue that:
According to the Center for Women's Business Research, from 1997 to 2004, the number of women-owned businesses grew twice as fast as all businesses in the United States. One in 18 adult women in the United States is a business owner. Women-owned companies generate $2.5 trillion in annual sales and employ nearly 20 million people.
Women are having a tremendous economic impact!

This year, Fast Company created a list of the 25 Top Women Business Builders. The list -- actually composed of 27 women due to business co-founders -- shows the diversity of women-owned businesses. For example, #1 on the list is Taryn Rose of Taryn Rose International (a designer) and #10 is Cyd Szymanski of Nest Fresh Eggs (organic chicken eggs) . The full list from Fast Company is available online here.
