China is home to the most self-made women entrepreneurs in the world, according to a new report.
The country minted 24 new female billionaires
to start 2021, bringing the total number to 85, said Hurun Research Institute.
China’s 85 female billionaires amount to two-thirds of the 130 women billionaires in the world.
While the number of women billionaires grew 30 per cent from last year, the 3,098 male billionaires dwarf the 130 self-made women billionaires.
Rupert Hoogewerf, the chairman and chief researcher at Hurun, told the South China Morning Post that the rest of the world needs to “wake up” to the dominance of Chinese women entrepreneurs.
Chinese women make up 70 per cent of the world’s most successful women entrepreneurs.
