Women entrepreneurs are on the rise. Between 2015 and 2016, the number of female entrepreneurs around the world rose at double the rate of their male counterparts.
This is good news for economic health generally, and not only because it means the female half of the population is moving closer to economic parity. Statistics indicate that companies helmed by women:
- Perform twice as well as those led by men
- Generate over 60 percent more value for investors
