Overcoming challenges female entrepreneurs face
Female entrepreneurs can face a range of hurdles, from getting their start-up off the ground to overseeing day-to-day operations and scaling their business.
Female entrepreneurs made up only 32.3% of the UK's smaller business leaders in 2020, equating to less than 7,300 businesses.
While that amount has reportedly increased since 2016, female entrepreneurs are still the minority.
The typical hurdles female entrepreneurs face are often very different from those experienced by their male counterparts.
