One statistic sates that in the last 15 years alone women-owned businesses have increased by 54 percent, reaching over 8.3 million total in the United States. Bradshaw, a driving force behind the women business owner movement says, "Entrepreneurship is the next natural step for women. We've reached parity in higher education.

As JESS3 begins to settle in its new Los Angeles headquarters, The Washington Business Journal announces the void it will leave in its former Washington D.C. home.

JESS3 works for some big-name tech and media clients." Last year alone, 93% of JESS3's revenue came solely from their West Coast clients. As Bradshaw states in the article, "It’s just nice to be a little bit closer to the clients we serve."
