Women Entrepreneurs

6 Dec

Starting a business takes time, innovative ideas and start-up cost. We tend to think that those who start their own business, come from a wealthy family and have inherited a lot of money or have some sort of financial support, however, in the study, “The Anatomy of an Entrepreneur”, the opposite proved to be true:

-The average age of women starting their own companies: 40.

-Less than 1% came from extremely rich or extremely poor backgrounds.

-70% were married when they launched their first business.

-60% had at least one child when they launched their first business.

-75% worked as employees for other companies for more than six years before launching their own companies.

Let this study, from the Kauffman Foundation for Entrepreneurship, be an inspiration to all women out there who have the drive and ambition and would like to follow their passion.
