Description

Ingrid Verheul, Professor Strategic Entrepreneurship at the RSM, and Laura Rosendahl Huber, researcher and professor at the RSM, have been mentioned in an article. The article discusses the ScaleUp Dashboard 2019, a research for fast growing companies. It shows that there is a decrease in fast growing companies with at least one female entrepreneur. Ingrid Verheul states that "Women identify less with the image of a 'succesful entrepreneur' and value their entrepreneurskills lower than men. Even if they are perfectly capable in managing a succesful young company, they would probably want to work less hard because of their lack of entrepreneurial confidence and their modesty." The research of Laura Rosendahl Huber shows that female students working together with female entrepreneurs obtain more confidence as an entrepreneur. This emphasizes the importance of female rolemodels to be visible.
