Women continue to be poorly represented in entrepreneurship. For the first two quarters in 2017, startups with a female founder raised only 15 percent of all seed funding dollars and only slightly more than 11 percent of all dollars invested.*   36 percent of all businesses are women-owned, and they account for only 12 percent of all sales and 15 percent of employment.*
