Growing Their Own Way: High-growth women entrepreneurs in Canada

FROM THE WEKH, OCTOBER 27, 2020 – New research recently published by the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub in collaboration with The Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship examines the experiences of 30 high-growth women entrepreneurs to better understand the factors that helped them grow as well as the persistent barriers that held them back.

Women’s representation at the helm of high-growth firms is an important means of increasing their overall inclusion in the labour force and ensuring that Canada benefits from the innovations they have to offer. Women entrepreneurs are also more likely to be involved in social enterprise; finding ways to enhance their scaling efforts thus offers broad social benefits beyond any one firm’s profitability. Despite the importance of women’s inclusion as leaders of high-growth firms, women remain underrepresented and under-financed within this phase of growth.
