WOMEN in business
FORGET about waiting on a glass slipper, women are shattering glass ceilings. In fact, new research by the Centre for Entrepreneurs reveals that female tycoons are twice as ambitious as their male counterparts. They have narrowed the gender gap by six per cent since 2012 and are adding to the economic engine that is entrepreneurship – this according to a Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2014 Women’s Report, which confirms that more than 200 million women are starting or running businesses in 83 economies across the globe. An additional 128 million are running established businesses. This week, we meet some of those women who are running successful businesses around Argyll and Lochaber.
