More women starting businesses on the High Street

Female entrepreneurs take charge of high street growth: FSB

  • Federation of Small Businesses’ (FSB) data used in a BBC report shows the UK’s high streets have seen a dramatic number of women starting-up businesses than at any previous time
  • Half (49.5%) of small firms established in the past two years in retail, or hotels, catering and leisure are owned primarily by women
  • This is in stark contrast to high street businesses started more than 20 years ago. When the FSB last surveyed its members it found that only a quarter (24%) of these businesses were primarily female owned
