Creating the Environment for Entrepreneurial Success

Posted By Alexander Pan, Aspen Institute, Tuesday, November 19, 2013


This special report from the Center for International Private Enterprise, Creating the Environment for Entrepreneurial Success, highlights the crucial environmental dimension of entrepreneurship ecosystems. Improving the conditions for entrepreneurship and leveling the playing field goes beyond the effort to help promising entrepreneurs. It expands the pool of potential entrepreneurs, builds incentives for entrepreneurship, eases the costs of doing business, and generates healthy competition. Policy and regulatory reforms should be integrated with comprehensive services to educate, finance, advise, and encourage entrepreneurs. Read more here

Global Entrepreneurship Monitor - 2010 Women's Report - Kelley, Brush, Greene & Litovsky

Posted By Saurabh Lall, ANDE, Thursday, December 15, 2011
The purpose of the GEM Women’s report is to examine women entrepreneurs around the world. The report seeks to understand differences in the frequency and nature of women’s entrepreneurship, and makes comparisons with men across various societies. Through interviews with more than 90,000 women, GEM discovered over 14,000 women entrepreneurs, studying their motivations for
starting ventures, as well as their ambitions for growth, innovation and expansion into international markets.

The researchers also analyzed societal attitudes about entrepreneurship, paying particular attention to differences in perceptions  among men and women. Furthermore, they explored the impact of the recession on views about starting and growing businesses among women and men entrepreneurs.

Survival Guide for the Woman Entrepreneur/Small-Business Owner

Posted By Stella Hanly, Aspen Institute - ANDE, Monday, December 12, 2011


THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESSES

Women-owned businesses (WOBs)—defined as privately held firms in which women own 51 percent or more of the businesses—are increasing at twice the rate of all businesses today, and have done so for nearly three decades. More than 28 percent of all businesses in the United States are owned by women. Only 4.2 percent of this country‘s revenue, however, is generated by women-owned businesses. One probable explanation is that the majority of these businesses are relatively small and have been in business for a relatively short period of time (69 percent began in 2000 or later). Yet, of the estimated 10.5 million women entrepreneurs in the U.S., only three percent have hit one million dollars in revenue.
