Making It On the International Stage: Can Girls Really Go Global?

There has never been a better time to ‘go global’ and doing business internationally has never been easier… but can women really make it on the International stage? The truth is that when it comes to women owning and running businesses, the picture is a little mixed. On the bright side, women are founding companies at an historic rate, with nearly 10 million women-owned businesses in the U.S. today. What’s more, the number of women-owned firms continues to grow at twice the rate of all U.S. firms (23 percent vs. 9 percent). In Australia, just...

A private equity company described...
