Women Entrepreneurs Get Know-How Their Own Way


A survey of nearly 1,200 business owners highlighted the different paths
men and women take to successfully starting their own companies.

 
Few owners had a mentor when they founded their businesses.

Very successful women entrepreneurs also had followed a more varied career path than their male counterparts.

   
Women sought outside advice more than men did.

Note: Survey respondents included 602 women and 592 men.
