Blockchain, Business and the Importance of Diversity
In this presentation, Lavinia Osbourne, gives an overview of Blockchain and how it will continue to impact the business world, particularly for small business owners.
Data shows that:
- Women started 49% of new businesses in the US in 2021, up from 28% in 2019, according to a new study
- Women entrepreneurship is also growing around the world, but obstacles remain and men still outnumber women 3-1 when it comes to business ownership, say experts
- The World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2022 shows more women than men continue to be impacted by the pandemic (https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2022/07/women-entrepreneurs-gusto-gender/)
As such, getting ahead of the curve and understanding the pros and cons of this new technology is now not just a “nice to know” but a “must know”.
Ultimately, sin gatekeepers, to this whole new world, women have the opportunity and choice to lead from the front rather than chase from behind.
