This article by Nellie Akalp tells us what we already know about women entrepreurs: they are thriving in the new economy and this is why:
- The growth in women-owned businesses can partly be attributed to sheer
necessity: increasingly, families must rely on a dual-income household and many women find escape constraints of paid employment by starting their own business.
- Entrepreneurship in the digital age lends itself to childcare – and I’ve spoken at length about why childcare is not a welfare issue, it’s a productivity issue for all economies.
- Women possess strong communication skills and social intelligence, they make good listeners and they are likely to collaborate – skills which are essential in the online world.
