Study: “Overcoming the Gender Gap: Women Entrepreneurs as Economic Drivers” @TheWomanEffect #hwhtw

In a study for the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Lesa Mitchell “explores the intersection of two issues that often are thought of separately: the need for sustained economic recovery in the United States, and the status of  women’s entrepreneurship.”  She concludes that “Women capable of starting growth companies may well be our greatest under-utilized economic resource,” and goes on to add:

“It is essential to see women’s entrepreneurship as an economic issue, not a gender-equity issue. When new companies and industries flourish, everyone benefits. And the returns will increase when more women contribute to the process by bringing their ideas to market and building high-growth firms around them.”

    I love that encouraging women entrepreneurs is not being considered a gender issue. It is so totally a economic issue. Small and medium sized businesses give our local communities such a boost.
