Global Entrepreneurs

A recent study of 59 economies by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) found that there were roughly 187 million women starting and running businesses across the globe in 2010. Over 1,550 of these women are members of the Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO) and contribute $17 billion towards the global economy. While the majority of firms examined in the GEM study were small to medium sized, WPO members on average generate $13 million in revenue and provide 94 jobs. Hailing from North America, South America, Europe, and Africa, WPO members have a combined 28,000 years in business and employ 113,500 individuals worldwide.
