Figures from Statistics Norway and Kvinnovasjon show that
Norway has the world's highest number of female entrepreneurs.
The main challenge, however, is to get companies to grow and
succeed. In total, there were approximately 49 000 new enterprises last year
with an increase of over 8 per cent (SSB). Meanwhile, the proportion of female
entrepreneurs has had a steady growth in recent years. The government aims female
entrepreneurs will make 40% of all businesses in 2013.
