Advice, Best Practices and Inspiration for Women Entrepreneurs
Around the globe, more and more women are taking their careers in their own hands by launching a business. Women represent one of the fastest growing segments of the entrepreneurship population worldwide. This surge in women’s entrepreneurship led The Economist to exclaim, “Forget China, India and the internet: Economic growth is driven by women!”
Yet, despite women entrepreneurs’ progress, they still face roadblocks along the way that limit their business’s growth. As a result, women often experience difficulties in obtaining funding from banks, private investors, and even from family and friends. In an effort to support women entrepreneurs, EIX.org and familybusiness.org offer articles that explore these challenges with research-based best practices and advice to bolster their success. Many of these articles also celebrate the unique strengths that women bring to their businesses. Links to the articles are below. We welcome your feedback!
