The myth that women can not work together is just not true. As an entrepreneur for more than 20 years I can truly say that I have had the pleasure of working with some influential women who were committed to the rise of female entrepreneurship. The challenge is that most entrepreneurs or solopreneurs work alone with now real resources to help them advance. Even with that, women are launching businesses at a rate the U.S. has never seen before. Creating commerce and jobs, becoming Moguls and CEOs of their own companies. Women are doing what was once considered the impossible. However, there is still a lot of work left to do. Women are still not receiving funding from Venture Capitalists for their businesses at the rate of their counterparts mostly due to lack of relationships and knowledge. In order to level the playing field, women need platforms that promote innovation and economic opportunity. Organizations like The PINKpreneur Network help women in business by connecting them with people and resources needed to be successful in a fast paced society. Collaboration and relationships are key to any entrepreneurs true victory.
