The reason why women entrepreneurs are much more successful is that being women. We understand the market in a much better way, as even today, in the traditional setup, the household income comes to the woman. We understand relationships better, we are more trust-worthy and our perspective adds a unique richness as by nature we are bound to see more dimensions because it is our role. If we add up these three four things, then it makes it the most successful business formula
