New NWBC Research on Women’s Access to Capital

August 15, 2014

NWBC's new research outlines the differences between men and women business owners, regarding the scale of business growth, amount and sources of financial capital, and the relationship between the two. The report findings on women’s financial capital are sobering: on average, women received only 2% of total funding from outside equity. Among the most successful firms, men started their businesses with six times as much capital as women did.
