It’s hard to believe that just 40 years ago, women wanting to start their own companies required a co-signature from a male to obtain a bank loan or that they could be denied simply because of their gender. Today, women have proven to be more than creditworthy; they’re also shaping the entrepreneurial landscape. Not only are women creating small businesses faster than men, they’re creating jobs and improving our economy in the process.
Online Business Degree has released the below infographic detailing the rise of the female entrepreneur.

Areas like more women needed in technology and more resources for women like female-focused incubators.
