Around the globe, more and more women are taking their careers in their own hands by launching a business. Women represent one of the fastest growing segments of the entrepreneurship population worldwide. Yet, despite women entrepreneurs’ progress, they still face roadblocks along the way that limit their business’s growth. As a result, women often experience difficulties in obtaining funding from banks, private investors, and even from family and friends. And in many parts of the world they still encounter preconceived notions of their appropriate roles in the business and society.

International Women's Day on March 8, 2023 is the perfect occasion to reflect on the impact and progress of women entrepreneurs and to provide resources that help them overcome challenges and learn from the experts and one another. Towards that end, EIX.org and familybusiness.org are showcasing their more than 50 articles that offer research-based best practices and advice especially for entrepreneurial women, at both family and non-family firms. Many of these articles also celebrate the unique strengths that women bring to their businesses. We welcome your feedback!
