Share your perspective on Women Entrepreneurship

This week Perspective is incubating dialogue on women entrepreneurship at kickstart cafe and collecting stories for female led startups. The purpose of this activity is to highlight the challenges of female founders so that support networks could be plugged in.

While all that happens, we feel its also important to share with you the need for studying and creating the conversation about women entrepreneurs. We have extracted information fromt the OECD report about why women entrepreneurship needs to be studied seperately and this is what it says :

  • The first reason is that women’s entrepreneurship has been recognized during the last decade as an important untapped source of economic growth.

 

  • Women entrepreneurs create new jobs for themselves and others and by being different also provide society with different solutions to management, organisation and business problems as well as to the exploitation of entrepreneurial opportunities. However, they still represent a minority of all entrepreneurs.

  • The second reason is that the topic of women in entrepreneurship has been largely neglected both in society in general and in the social sciences.

 

  • The industries (primarily retail, education and other service industries) chosen by women are often or have until recently been perceived as being less important to economic development and growth than high-technology and manufacturing.

 

  • Mainstream research, policies and programs tend to be “men streamed” and too often do not take into account the specific needs of women entrepreneurs and would-be women entrepreneurs. As a consequence, equal opportunity between men and women from the perspective of entrepreneurship is still not a reality.
