As we have noted before, there are a number of resources available to help women entrepreneurs level the playing with their male counterparts.
Nonetheless, as Mathilde Collin — co-founder and CEO of Frontapp, a collaborative E-mail app — observes for the Wall Street Journal:
“There’s a huge gender imbalance in the entrepreneurship world. For all the strides women have made in launching startups and driving the economy forward, they face persistent obstacles that hamper their progress — as documented in a recent Senate committee report that shows how far women lag behind men in areas like access to capital.”
The following two charts, both from the Wall Street Journal, highlight (1) the characteristics of female versus male entrepreneurs and (2) the disadvantages that women entrepreneurs face.
