Women in the Marketplace Trends.

The Facts and Trends About Women in the Marketplace: According to a 2015 study by Babson College, businesses that have at least one woman in an executive seat tend to have much higher valuations than companies with all men in C-level positions. In fact, companies with a female executive are worth 64% more at first funding and 49 percent more at last funding than their all-male counterparts. With numbers like that, it’s no wonder that the amount of early-stage investing in companies with at least one female executive has been growing over the past 15 years, but there is still room to grow.
