Most Common Businesses Opened by Women

Women are starting businesses at higher rates than men, While there is diversity in women who start businesses and the types of ventures they launch, the list of top business categories with women at the helm seems a bit old fashioned. Here are the top categories: 

  1. Event Planning
  2. Catering
  3. Daycare
  4. Creative Jobs
  5. Online Retailer

With the exception of online retailer, where is the growth potential? I suppose the first 3 businesses could franchise, but it is hard to envision many catering companies becoming big C corporations. 

So, ladies, where are the tech start ups? Or new ventures in the STEM field? What barriers still need to be overcome to broaden the field?
