Is the road to success more difficult for female entrepreneurs?

Women account for only about 16 percent of employers, and they make up only 10 percent of founders of “high-growth” firms.
Women start fewer businesses because they're seen as "less competent."

Why are there so few women entrepreneurs?

Differences among the genders in terms of work experience, resources and social ties are a few of the usual suspects.

But what else may come into play?
