Star Boston Celtics wing Jaylen Brown recently announced on Twitter that he plans to partner with Legal Zoom’s “Fast Break 4 Small Biz” program in support of women starting their own businesses to be their own bosses.
Citing a recent Legal Zoom survey that found among 60% of their respondents started a business explicitly to be their own boss, Brown announced his partnership with the organization. The study cited by Brown notes how while women are part of a rising tide of entrepreneurship, still find themselves in a sheer minority (just 4%) of small business funding from traditional financial institutions — and just 2% of funding from venture capital sources.
The Georgia native shared how he hopes to help with “providing equitable resources for women” through his partnership with Legal Zoom.
