Editor’s List: Authority Magazine’s Favorite ‘Five Things Videos’ About The Five Things You Need To Thrive and Succeed as a Woman Founder

According to this EY report, only about 20 percent of newly funded companies have women founders. This reflects great historical progress, but it also shows that more work still has to be done to empower women to create companies. What is currently holding women back from founding companies? What particular obstacles do women have to overcome to start companies? What can we learn from successful women founders?

Some of the experts we interviewed put together some fantastic videos sharing their five tips. Please enjoy these videos and interviews below.
