What’s Bossy Chicago?

We shift purchasing power to women-owned businesses

Why? Because women control over 80% of consumer spending in the United States. But women-owned businesses only make 4% of our country’s business revenue, and this number hasn’t budged in over 20 years. That’s bullshit. And that’s why Bossy Chicago exists.

We help you shift your purchasing power, slowly but surely, to women and non-binary small business owners.

Money is power. Where you spend your money means something, whether you’re aware of it or not. So next time you’re looking for a new restaurant, coffee shop, chiropractor, accountant, you name it, search the Women-Owned Directory first.


Are you a women-owned business?

Are you an ally?
