A survey of Asia-Pacific women entrepreneurs has found that “while confidence and bold growth plans are trademarks of the region’s female business owners, they face some behavioral barriers to successfully scaling their operations.”
The survey was conducted as part of the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women™ (EWW) Asia-Pacific program, which is sponsored by Standard Chartered, and assists established women-led businesses ready to become global market leaders.
Here’s one finding:
An overwhelming majority (90%) of the 143 respondents reported that they plan to scale their business, with 60% planning to grow internationally and 16% working toward an IPO. Almost two-thirds (58%) of those surveyed have explored external financing options; however, 73% admitted they found the process “intimidating.”
