This article gave a brief overview of the role that gender can play when starting a business. Unfortunately, if the data provided here is accurate, it looks as though the gender gap, particularly regarding entrepreneurship, continues to grow. While this article gave a few example as to why this might be happening which included capital raising, work-life balance and education, I’m not sure this tells the whole story. This article left me wondering about what other contributing factors might play into this issue? Why aren’t more women starting up businesses? Is it really just because of family obligations, or, is there something much deeper causing this discrepancy?
