Survey of Women Business Owners

Interested in learning about the female entrepreneur?

Then you need to check out 2007 Survey of Women Business Owners.

The results show that women entrepreneurs take risks, are educated, and have borrowing power.

  • 60 percent of women surveyed would use up to 95 percent of their personal savings or put up their home as collateral for a loan to start or expand their business.

  • 40 percent of women business owners have a post-graduate education, compared with only 9 percent of the entire female labor force.

  • Less than 6 percent have gone to a bank and never been able to receive financing.

The survey polled 650 respondents across the country, including 609 small business owners with anywhere from 1 - 100 employees.
