Wisconsin has fewer female entrepreneurs than nationwide average

In a new report compiled by Volusion, 7.7% of female workers nationally own their own business, while only 6.3% own their own business in Wisconsin.

The analysis also found that in Wisconsin, full-time female entrepreneurs earn an adjusted median income of $41,450, but women earn less across all worker classes compared to men.

The gender wage gap among full-time entrepreneurs — a full $15,000 per year difference — is the nation's largest.
