On International Girls Day, Wednesday, October 11, Girls with Impact will release its first report on young women in entrepreneurship.
The report, based on university data never before released, underscores the importance of early education and the opportunity for colleges and business leaders.
“The results are startling,” says Jennifer Openshaw, CEO of Girls with Impact, the nation’s only entrepreneurship program just for girls. “Although few women participate in venture competitions in college, when they do, they’re going home with the prize in greater numbers.”
“The bottom line: it pays to have women on your team,” adds David Noble, executive director of the Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
Girls with Impact is the country’s first online, real-time entrepreneurship program for teen girls. It includes a 12-week, coach-led Academy to help girls create a business venture, ongoing mentoring through the monthly Boardroom, and a network to create the next generation of female talent.
