In the current era of globalisation, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are recognised as major players in innovation and job creation. Furthermore, entrepreneurship is no longer a male preserve: although few women can be found at the head of large companies, an increasing number are taking up the challenge of creating and managing their own businesses.
This new phenomenon calls for change: business will make the most of globalisation and new technologies only if the obstacles preventing women from fully taking their place as entrepreneurs can be overcome. Women entrepreneurs make new contributions to business, create jobs and provide both new ideas and innovative ways of putting them into practice. Helping them realise their potential will provide a vital stimulus to the economy. Cette publication est tirée de la conférence de l'OCDE sur "Les femmes entrepreneurs à la tête de PME : une nouvelle force pour l'innovation et la création d'emplois". Les lecteurs de langue française y trouveront une synthèse en français des présentations, discussions et conclusions de la conférence.
