Female Entrepreneurs: Overcoming Hurdles to Success
November 16, 2016
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “I want to be around people that dream…and do things” (Amy Poehler). Forty-six percent of US privately held firms are at least half owned by women and represent ~16 million jobs. But while female entrepreneurship is rising, male-owned businesses are 3.5 times more likely to reach $1 million in annual revenues. With just 2 percent of US women-owned businesses earning $1M a year, what resources, leadership skills and strengths do female startups need to scale to their full potential? The experts speak. Kerrie MacPherson, EY: “Women are powerhouse entrepreneurs. The research shows that when women entrepreneurs succeed, they drive economic growth and invest more back into their families and communities” (President Barack Obama). Kat Vorotova, Try The World: “Teach girls bravery, not perfection” (Reshma Saujani). Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP SuccessFactors: “I’m unstoppable because I don’t know how to stop” (Tina Fey). Join us for Female Entrepreneurs: Overcoming Hurdles to Success.
