Women entrepreneurs make significant contributions to economic growth and to poverty reduction around the world, that often go unnoticed.
According to a World Bank report, in the United States, women-owned firms are growing at more than double the rate of all other firms, contributing nearly $3 trillion to the economy and are directly responsible for 23 million jobs. In developing countries, female entrepreneurship is also increasing—there are about 8 million to 10 million formal small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with at least one female owner.
Singapore is South-east Asia’s economic hub, home to several business enterprises. In our excitement at tracking large and medium enterprises we often forget the contribution made by small entities and start-ups. India Se decided to move away from the regular and showcase the work of some very enterprising women who have made Singapore their home and base for their businesses to grow.
