Top 3 personality traits of successful female entrepreneurs
As we celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, our Co-founder and CEO Sara Green Brodersen shares the 3 personality traits that she thinks helped her succeed.
According to Emerging Europe’s recent report Funding Women Entrepreneurs: How to Empower Growth, only 2% of women-owned business have 10 or more employees. Only 1.3% of venture-backed startups have a female founder.
And although technology is one of the fastest growing industries, in the US and Europe - less than 25% of those who work in the tech industry , are female.
As CEO and Co-founder of a disruptive Fintech company having raised a pre-seed funding round during a pandemic and growing a diverse team, Sara is breaking through barriers of female entrepreneurs in the tech industry.
On celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, Sara discusses what she believes are the most important personality traits that have helped her success with @Innovify’s Elena Oprea. Watch the video below.
