WEVentureScope: New data on women entrepreneurs
We were able to advance data collection and
analysis for women’s entrepreneurial ventures in
this study in several ways:
• 8 EIU-created indicators pertaining to women
entrepreneurs including
 Supplier diversity initiatives for women-led
MSMEs
 Technical training programmes for female
business owners
 Business networks for women
 Availability of childcare
 Maternity & paternity leave
• 16 gender-disaggregated data series on women-led MSMEs
 EIU disaggregated World Bank Enterprise Survey data to capture the
experience of women leading MSMEs

Access to Finance category: Some specifics
 Overall, this category focuses on women’s access to financial instruments as a tool
for starting and developing their businesses
 These indicators identify products for which women’s use is strong/weak
 Measures the availability and use of formal financial products by female managers of
MSMEs
 Has the highest number of gender disaggregated sub-indicators, which reflects the
progress in data collection in this field
