EU27 self-employed by sectors (20-64 years old, 2012)

Throughout the EU, female entrepreneurs are mostly found in those sectors where entrepreneurship is less present, such as the social and education sectors. More innovative, faster growing sectors with more self-employment (and hence more “entrepreneurial potential”), such as retail or science, are mostly dominated by men. The number of women who actually own businesses in science or technology in the EU lies within an estimated 5% to 15%.
