As we celebrate Women’s History Month, Alibaba is proud to recognize the accomplishments of women entrepreneurs around the world, including many in the U.S. The past year has been challenging for business owners struggling to overcome the impact of the pandemic. This month, Alibaba is shining a spotlight on four women entrepreneurs from the U.S. who led their companies successfully through these difficult times and grew their businesses globally while facing extraordinary challenges.
We are proud to work with these women and thousands of other U.S. brands to help them expand their business globally. You can learn more about their successful companies below.
Last month, we continued our work to help more U.S. businesses expand globally. We held our first-ever Global Products Expo, which featured a “Made in the USA” event. Over 15,000 American products were showcased during the virtual expo, reaching more than 50,000 unique visitors. On March 25, we will host a webinar to help more U.S. business owners understand China's retail landscape and how they can grow their sales through Alibaba’s e-commerce platforms.
As spring begins, I am optimistic that businesses will begin to emerge from the pandemic stronger, and we look forward to helping more U.S. entrepreneurs continue to break new ground on our e-commerce platforms.
