Report: Women Now Run One In Three High-Growth Companies, Despite A Worldwide Lack Of Access To Capital
One-third high-growth businesses worldwide are now run by women, according to the sweeping Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) 2021/2022 Women’s Entrepreneurship Report.
“That’s an important statistic,” says Aileen Ionescu-Somers, executive director of GEM. “For me that indicates that women can definitely achieve on the most demanding side of entrepreneurship.”
The report defines high-growth businesses as job-creators with 20+ employees that are projecting 20+ hires in the next five years.
