This week a new document was published by Prowess National Policy Centre containing some interesting facts about women-owned businesses including:

  • Women are nearly three times as likely to collaborate with research institutes (universities in particular) than male businesses
  • Companies run by women directors pay their invoices on average 49% quicker than those with just men on the board
  • Only 2% of men cite family commitments as a reason for becoming self-employed, compared with 21% of women
