Female entrepreneurship powers the global economy
Startups with at least one female founder worldwide
Businesses worldwide owned by women
Funding raised by female founders globally
Revenue generated worldwide by female-led businesses

On average, US women's earnings are at around 80% of the average man's, though this varies significantly between race, occupation, and geography.
With 80% of founders worldwide being male, female founders are still finding it difficult to get funding or be taken seriously as a founder. Additionally, as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic, women were disproportionately impacted, many being forced out of the workforce due to childcare needs and burnout.
Only 2-9% of all funds deployed to technology startups went to founding teams that included at least one woman (female founders of color receiving an even smaller sliver).
