Women Entrepreneurs Are Crushing It

According to the National Association of Women Business Owners, as of 2015, there are more than 9.4 million women-owned businesses in the United States, employing nearly 7.9 million people and contributing $1.4 trillion into the economy.  When it comes to starting and growing a business, women entrepreneurs are crushing it.

If there’s anything that defines women entrepreneurs, it’s their ability to figure out everything from how to write a business plan to launching an app to — yes — taking a business global.

When you are ready to launch and grow your business, keep these six tips in your back pocket from women who’ve done it before.

  1. Build a network early.
  2. Hire help early.
  3. Listen to advice, but make your own decisions.
  4. Go global early [not in the article but Laurel Delaney’s advice :-)]
  5. Go for it!
  6. Be confident.

Learn what women entrepreneurs have done to crush it.

Ottawa, Canada researchers Clare Beckton and Janice McDonald are eager to try to determine if factors such as a lack of access to capital make women more likely than men to devise inventive new ways of doing business out of necessity, such as taking a business global.  That could be construed as forced innovation or creativity.  It’s time to find out.

“When you are underfunded and perhaps don’t have resources, you get pretty darn creative,” she says. “It forces innovation. Given that we know that access to capital is very challenging for women entrepreneurs, has that limited access to capital shaped outcomes in terms of how they’ve approached innovation? We’re not saying that those two are necessarily linked. We’re just wondering, are they? If so, in what way?”
