    Entrepreneurship is a field which needs an array of skill sets. And when we examine gender-wise, each of them has their own plus and minus points.

    Women meet the needs required of an entrepreneur in today's consumer driven world. Females just seem to have better perception, are more engaging and over all have better communication skills. This is something where men take a really bad beating as entrepreneurs.

    Women are coming into their own because the way of marketing is changing. They might not be hard-sellers like men but they have a great way to impress through a softer way of approaching which is much more invaluable in today's scene. Females are very good at adapting their approach personalizing to an individual.

    Women bring in much less testosterone ego. Many men become numb-skulls when there are decisions to be made where their ego comes into play. Females care very less about their ego as long as their work gets done. This is a major factor that can affect entrepreneurial careers of men and women.

    A little bit of sexiness never hurt anyone!

    Women do the sexy very good, something which men (sigh!) have a long way to go at. A flutter of the eye-lashes and most females will find half their job done.

    But Hang on...

    If you men are upset after reading the post so far, there are also drawback in females entrepreneurs. The following problems are the most usually witnessed:

    * Bitchiness
    * Jealousy of younger counterparts
    * Screeching debates
    * Bringing unnecessary sexual tension to the conference room with inappropriate dress sense :p

    The above are a few negatives to mention as far as women are concerned ??“ as entrepreneurs. Then again, these traits will also vary from each individual.

    There are many many male entrepreneurs who can beat their female counterparts hands down because they are better listeners, more sincere, and more willing to do the right thing. Which is all that matter is the end irrespective of whether you are a male or female. It is unfair to simply generalize women are better entrepreneurs or vice-versa.

    I hope you found the post insightful. Do leave your comments on this below!

    In terms of skill sets they may be equal, but social factors can be a great deterrent to fully developing your business.

    I think it all depends - in certain situations, women have an advantage over other men (such as when marketing to men), but this is not always the case, as there are plenty of successful men out there eho do better than woman at their business. Ultimately, it boils down to one's skills and abilities, and in this business, you have to know how to sell, regadless of what sex you are.

    I don't think sex has anything to do with being an entrepreneur.

    The temptation to multi-task is always a weakness for me (when it comes to business). I don't know if it has been proven that this is indeed a females only strength/weakness. I end up losing focus and not following through on anything.
    I hope you understand what I am getting at.

    I've seen great male and female entrepreneurs so I don't think gender matters either.
