Where Every Woman Has A Voice


When Corporate America Says No, Women Start Their Own Businesses…

A woman’s place in the modern workforce is a hotly debated issue these days. Most likely that’s because the figures surrounding female pay rate, education and business experience don’t parallel male statistics.

The infographic below, based on compiled research from the University of North Carolina’s online MBA program, details where women fall in the grand (business) scheme of things. The graphic notes that only 5% of startups are owned by women, and that only 3-5% of all women-owned businesses receive venture capital funding.

Women operated or venture-backed companies have 12% higher revenues. With those kinds of statistics, one would think that companies would welcome high-level female execs; however, 40% of large public companies worldwide have no women board members.  Women are founding businesses at 1.5 times the national average.
