Clearing the Hurdles: Women Building High-Growth Businesses - new book

2003, ISBN: 9780131112018

ID: 978013111201

Why do we care so passionately about women and high-growth enterprises? Because entrepreneurship is a driving force in the growth and prosperity of the nation. Because entrepreneurs create innovative products, provide new jobs, and gain substantial financial rewards for themselves and their partners in the process. And especially because, for women, there is a significant gap between the number who start new ventures and the number who are able to achieve high growth and substantial success. Entrepreneursas Heroes... You know their names today, even though they made their mark 100 years ago and more. Cornelius Vanderbilt (railroads), Andrew Carnegie (steel), John D. Rockefeller (oil), Marshall Field (retailing), and Henry Ford (automobiles) left an enduring legacy of innovation, market dominance, and vast fortunes. They are among a handful of extraordinary entrepreneurs who not only achieved great wealth, but also won international celebrity. Whether you think of them as robber barons or heroes, these men who developed railroads, steel, oil, large-scale retailing, and automobiles continue to have a star quality associated withtheir names more than a century later. The creation of new ventures is deeply embedded in our American heritage. The exciting part is that it is even more vibrant and widespread today than it was in the days of Rockefeller, Field, and Ford. Ever-expanding technology, support from government policy and regulations, and the redefinition of corporate America in the 1980s and 1990s made the United States a hotbed of innovation and new venture creation. Entrepreneurs, armed with promising new business concepts, lured by vast new market opportunities, and convinced of huge financial payoffs, launched millions of new ventures in the past 20 years. That they did so in an environment rich with resources-;both public and private-;added to the likelihood of their success. Some of the most celebrated contemporary venturers are Steve Jobs(Apple, Pixar), Bill Gates (Microsoft), Jeff Bezos (Amazon.com), Howard Shultz (Starbucks), and Michael Dell (Dell Computers). In our hearts, we know that the kind of entrepreneurial success these men achieved is reserved for a very few. We sometimes think of them as the lucky ones, butwe also recognize their focus, talents, and personal efforts. Looking onlyat their successes, it is easy to imagine that they hurdled over all obstacles in their race to develop new products and services, and then build new markets and industries. However, that was not really the case. Their successes were built on astute observation, practical application, and hard work. Each drew on personal resources, but when that wasn''t sufficient, enlisted the help of others. Each one confronted failure more than once, but never accepted it as final. Entrepreneurs starting new ventures today aspire to that same rarified air of success, but at the same time they recognize that these cultural icons are nothing short of heroic. The biggest winners among entrepreneurs are celebrities precisely because they are so unique in their accomplishments. Why This Book? Did you notice? The names on the preceding lists are all male. True, only a select few entrepreneurs become heroes-;but it is also true that heroines are almost entirely absent from the list! With the notable exception of a handful of dynamos in the cosmetics (Madame C. J. Walker, Helena Rubinstein, Estee Lauder, Mary Kay Ash) and fashion industries (Coco Chanel, Liz Claiborne, Donna Karan), women have not been significant players in the world of high-stakes entrepreneurship. More recently, CarolBartz (AutoDesk) and Meg Whitman (eBay) have become standouts in technology-based ventures. We didn''t set out to write a book. We simply wanted to find out why women, who in 2003 were majority owners of 28% of all businesses in the United States (and, if women with 50% ownership Candida G.

ISBN:

9780131112018

Starting, funding and growing a new business has never been easy. The hurdles can be even higher for women, due to widespread misperceptions in the investment capital community about their qualifications, businesses and networks. In High Hopes, High Hurdles five leading consultants to women entrepreneurs offer systematic solutions to the challenges that face everyone who wants to start a new business as well as specific guidance for women facing their own set of obstacles. Unlike competitive books, this one draws on five years of original research, performed as part of the Diana Project--a massive initiative seeking to identify and quantify the obstacles to women owned businesses. The authors review both personal and strategic factors associated with funding, growth and ultimate success, including: the founder's goals and expertise; financial resources; networks; goal-setting; management team recruitment; strategy; and more. For each, they thoroughly review the nature and sources of the obstacles, why those obstacles might differ for women; and what can go wrong--or right. Most important, they offer practical, concrete strategies and solutions for every obstacle.
