Women helping fuel UK GDP growth with entrepreneurial Boom

The number of women in the UK choosing to set up their own business has doubled in the last 6 years according to latest figures from UK Business Directory MySheriff.co.uk.

Since 2009 the number of women going it alone has increased more than two fold and not just in traditional sectors like Cleaners and Hairdressers but also the more male dominated sectors of Software development and Website Design which saw increases of 15% and 18% respectively.

‘This new data shows that modern woman is responding to the challenges of the 21st century by being ever more creative and entrepreneurial’ said Max Wallace Managing Director of MySheriff.co.uk, adding ‘That while the numbers of new businesses being added were still proportionally higher for men that the new figures signal a turning point for women whilst contributing towards positive UK GDP growth.’
