The Sky Is The Limit For A Mumtrepreneur


Business Mum

A report this week from the World Economic Forum (WEF) suggests that women are still being underutilised in the workplace in many countries around the world. The main problem that women face is being unable to break through into senior management roles or onto the board.

Worldwide, the US has the highest number of female employees (52%) while India has the lowest with just 23%. The Prime Minister Gordon Brown recently spoke about the problem in the United Kingdom and called for more female role models in business. He also stated that the small amount of female board members in top companies was unacceptable, especially as now more than half of all graduates are women.

Many of these talented women who feel they have climbed as far as they can up the corporate ladder and are now getting frustrated should go it alone and start their own business. The number of female entrepreneurs starting their own businesses is currently growing at a faster rate than their male counterparts.

The biggest growth area is from mothers starting a business whilst also looking after their children at home. These individuals are often referred to as ‘Mumtrepreneurs’ in the media. Today’s technology has made it possible for women to achieve a better work / life balance and give a high level of care to their children without sacrificing their career.
