Meet our women entrepreneursAXA recently launched a mentoring program for women entrepreneurs in collaboration with “Global Invest Her”, an organization dedicated to helping women secure the funding they need to make their business ideas a reality. We invite you to get to know the winners of this unique program and find out more about how AXA is helping to empower talented women entrepreneurs.
Globally, one-third of businesses are owned by women and strong growth in the number of women entrepreneurs can be observed around the world – for example, women-owned firms in the US are consistently growing at over twice the rate of other firms. At the same time, women are more likely to be underinsured relative to their male counterparts and often feel neglected by the insurance industry. Nonetheless, women are ready to invest up to 90% of their income to protect their households (versus only 40% for men). Whether they are entrepreneurs or heads of households, women are increasingly making the major financial decisions.
Helping women entrepreneurs
We want to foster women as an innovation territory, unlocking their decision-maker power and supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem as part of AXA’s ambition to become women’s most trusted partner.
To contribute to this goal, we developed a dedicated plan to empower women entrepreneurs, where one of the main pillars for this year has been launching the women entrepreneur mentoring program with our partner “Global Invest Her“:
