AMEX OPEN

American Express sponsors both the OPEN Forum online community, which targets small-business owners, and the Women in Business Forum. Current and future women business owners can join the forum to read and post questions to gain knowledge from other participants and small-business owners. Articles on relevant topics such as marketing, technology, leadership, customers, and money are also posted. The Technology section provides small-business owners access to information on technology that could make owning and running a small business easier and more profitable. Under the OPEN umbrella, American Express supports annual State of Women’s Business reports. Additionally, American Express also supports the BootCamp specifically for women CEOs, focusing on “confidence, competence and connections.”
