Women Owned Businesses

 

 

Adding women to the ownership of a man owned business reduces its potential receipts by $323,300 or 55.5%.  Adding men to the ownership of a woman owned business increases its potential receipts by $108,100 or 71.5%.  Completely removing women from ownership increases potential receipts of a business by four fold, or $431,400.

Average Receipts:

Man owned business = $582,500.

Woman owned business = $151,100.

Man and woman owned business = $259,200.

Reduction due to presence of women = $323,300 = 55.5%.

Increase due to presence of men = $108,100 = 71.5%.

Increase due to absence of women = $431,400 = 3.9X. 

 

This is the mechanism by which just 5 women CEO's caused stockholders to lose more than $200 billion.
