More women entrepreneurs mean less global poverty

Press/Media: Article/Feature


Entrepreneurship is an engine of economic growth but it can only move into top gear when there are more women. 

recent study showed that women microentrepreneurs with a greater growth mindset are more likely to perceive that technology is easy to use and useful and, therefore, have a higher propensity to adopt e-commerce for their business.

Cultivating a growth mindset may be a promising channel to foster greater e-commerce use, with important implications for entrepreneurship.

Addressing the gender gap in entrepreneurship is essential to boost innovation, improve competitiveness, increase productivity and create jobs all which help achieve zero global poverty.
