That’s according to Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor (pictured left), the wife of the Bernama (Malaysia) Prime Minister.

She goes on further to say:

“If women entrepreneurs continue to remain in traditional businesses, they must find a niche within a market to ensure continuous demand for their products.”

Worldly Women Entrepreneurs: Get Energized!

This article is part of the eJournal USA issue “Enterprising Women, Thriving Societies.”  I was asked by the U.S. Department of State to write the lead article, “Women Entrepreneurs Energize Economies.”

Women-owned companies are rising the fastest in the world’s emerging economies — particularly in Brazil, India, Vietnam and the Philippines. In fact, in many developing economies the rate of female entrepreneurship surpasses that in the world’s most industrialized countries, according to Joel Kotkin, a professor of urban studies at Chapman University in California.

I trust it will inspire all individuals — men and women alike — to pursue their dream of starting a business.  There’s even a section tips on how to start a business — don’t miss it!
