According to Fundera.com – December 31, 2019, there are 17 facts to know about female entrepreneurs, but today I want to highlight my 5 favorite ones below:
1. 62% of women entrepreneurs cite their business as their primary source of income.
2. 64% of new women-owned businesses were started by women of color last year.
3. Latina women-owned businesses grew more than 87%
4. 25% of women business owners seek business financing
5. Female entrepreneurs ask for roughly $35,000 less in business financing than men
I chose to highlight these statistics because I know there are many individuals (especially non-entrepreneurs) who can find the challenges in these numbers. I personally see the opportunity in them. If more than 60% of women CEOs are able make their business their full-time gig, then that sounds like music to my ears. They have overcome the challenges of being employed by “the man” and can create a bit autonomy for their lives. The fact that only 25% of women business owners seek funding means that 75% of us have learned how to make a dollar stretch to meet the needs of our enterprise. That is a mastery skill that everyone should learn.
In this climate in America, I don’t believe women get the respect and acknowledgement they deserve in running a successful business. That is why we are hosting the Women Who Win conference on March 19 th . If you see yourself in any of the five statistics above, then my friend, your presence is requested.
