- (63%) Statistics show that women make better entrepreneurs. Companies with female founders perform 63% better than those with their male peers.
- (2.7%) Currently, female founders are receiving very little funding. Only 2.7% of venture capital dollars went towards female-founded companies in 2019.
- (2017) Blossom Accelerator has been empowering & enabling female founders from across Saudi Arabia and driving a narrative of diversity & inclusivity as we believe inclusivity drives innovation, social impact, and higher economic returns.
Women don’t just drive cars, we drive economies.
