If the title of this article doesn’t grab your interest, you’re probably engaged in matters of global importance. Amid the feminist movement and constant reminders of gender inequality in business and other areas of our culture, even admitting this fact can get you into a heated debate at the coffee shop.

The key points of the article:

  • The average annual revenues of women-owned businesses were $384,359 in 2019 according to the annual study of 30,000 women-owned companies by Biz2Credit.
  • Male-owned businesses generated an average of $752,154 in 2019.

These numbers came from research into more than 20 industries, including retail, health care, construction, hospitality, professional services, and others.

Another interesting fact was that the study showed that the average credit score for female entrepreneurs was 588, 23 points lower than the average male’s score of 613. While the article states that women-owned businesses are performing better than ever, they are still well behind the enterprises owned by males.
