Enlightening Statistics on Women in Business

Enlightening Statistics on Women in Business

Harvard Professor Lynda Applegate researches women entrepreneurs.

She shared some interesting statistics with me and my fellow alumni last week.

  • Of the total number of new businesses launched in the U.S. in 2014, 40% are owned by women.
  • During the first half of 2014, women opened more than 1,200 new businesses each day, double the rate from three years ago.
  • More than 9 million women-owned businesses in the United States generate more than $1.4 trillion in revenues.
  • These women-owned businesses employ 7.9 million people.

When you are thinking about getting a loan or asking for investor funding and think being a woman is a deterrent, think again.

There are plenty of successful women business owners.  You can be, too!
