It's official. Women Make Great Entrepreneurs!

Here's some good news to start the day - research shows that women make great entrepreneurs - that's according to Kauffman's recently published Entrepreneurship Policy Digest. There are a number of really sound reasons for this, starting with the fact that women entrepreneurs bring particular unique sets of skills that not only set them apart from their male counterparts, but also lend themselves to achieving success in business. The research also highlights some interesting findings, not least of which is that women display greater ambitions to become serial entrepreneurs than their male counterparts. Here in Africa, that has to be positive news - it means more companies and brands launched, more solutions to key challenges facing the continent, and more jobs and opportunities created.
