In case you needed more evidence for the powerful potential of investing in women-led startups, today we have 10 statistics for you that build the case for putting your dollars behind female innovators. 

Did you know that startups founded by women have a two times higher return rate per dollar invested?

Additionally, diverse companies have a 22% lower employee turnover rate than their less diverse counterparts.
