All over the world, women determined to make it as entrepreneurs are turning their dreams and ideas into innovative startups. But we’re not living in a woman’s world just yet. Take a look at Australia, for instance, where only one in four startups is founded by a woman. So, where are all the women entrepreneurs at? On their way to success is where! According to Forbes, the female startup community’s future is looking brighter than what is commonly assumed. And the women entrepreneurs of Belgium? They’re on a roll, too!
Strong supporters of female entrepreneurship, Start it@kbc and Telenet Kickstart feel particularly proud of the numerous inspiring women they helped turn their startups into blooming businesses.
Eager to meet some of them? Prepare to be amazed!
Are you a talented and ambitious woman with an innovative business idea, but not quite sure whether you’re ready to start fundraising? Then Sandy Plunkett, founder of consultancy firm Innovation Clearinghouse, has something she’d like to say to you:
“Women tend to want everything to be perfect before they look for funding, and try to be all-rounders, but this is not what venture capitalists want. If you are trying to get funded in a male-dominated funding industry, then wow them with one gigantic fact that makes you really different. All the other stuff, the VCs think they can put together over time.”
