Are entrepreneurship policies really benefiting women entrepreneurs?

Policy is an important component of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, with strong policy frameworks essential for economic growth. Entrepreneurship policy has been shown to be fragmented, disconnected from other policies and ecosystem components, and inherently biased. As a result, women entrepreneurs often fail to benefit from current policy offerings. In this commentary, I draw on a recent OECD-GWEP report to provide some examples of how, for the most part, entrepreneurship policy underserves women entrepreneurs.
