Women entrepreneurs are getting more help and resources, including money, from governments, universities and corporations. The number of women-owned businesses in the United States increased 44 percent from 2001 to 2011, says the Center for Women’s Business Research. Raising capital, or investment money, is a major problem for startups because they need money to grow. Only two percent of women-run startups in the U.S. receive support from venture capitalists, says a study by the National Foundation for Women Business Owners and Wells Fargo & Co. Yet women in the U.S. own 38 percent of U.S. businesses, or 9.1 million companies, says the study. These companies produce $3 trillion yearly and create 16 percent of U.S. jobs. Springboard Enterprises in Washington, D.C. is among organizations adding to the rise in women entrepreneurship. The group helps connect investors with women-owned startups. It says it has helped about 600 women-owned companies raise $7 billion worldwide. Another factor fueling women’s entrepreneurship is the rise of “incubators” for startup companies. Incubators are often located at universities. They provide possible mentors and investors. Babson College’s Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership in Wellesley, Massachusetts is an example. It also holds a yearly business competition for women entrepreneurs with a grand prize of $250,000.
