Steve Rucinski, Small Business CEO Blog, points to the GEM Report on women entrepreneurs. It says women and men use the same strategies:
- seeking opportunities
- taking risks
- mingling with other entrepreneurs
- sharpening their business skills
But there are always differences!
On average, men remain nearly twice as likely as women to start a new business. In high-income countries, the gender gap is greatest, while in middle-income countries it narrows somewhat.
Asked why entrepreneurial activity rises when women are already working and have higher levels of household income and education, Professor Langowitz said: “There’s a clear message that being in the workplace not only helps women achieve greater personal income but also gives them access to the resources, ideas, and social capital that enable entrepreneurial activity.”
