Why Women Make Excellent Entrepreneurs in the Digital Age
From her article, Why Women Make Excellent Entrepreneurs in the Digital Age, Nellie Akalp, CEO of CorpNet.com writes that in 2010, women became the majority of the U.S. workforce for the first time in the country’s history and that 57% of college students are now women. An American Express OPEN State of Women-Owned Businesses report found that between 1997 and 2011, the number of women-owned firms increased by 50%. In her experience of helping entrepreneurs and small business owners launch their brands, Akalp believes there are several traditionally “feminine” leadership qualities that are more significant now than ever:
1. Women possess strong communication skills and social intelligence.
2. Women make good listeners.
3. Women collaborate.
4. Women prefer lower risk.
