As we can see there are multiple advances which keep on coming and are led by women. And it is expected that 2019 will also be the year of the woman as there are multiple women who are serving in the Us Congress and announcing them as the candidates for the President of the United States.

It is also noticed that investor funding of 2.2% went to startups which are lead by women. In our advanced technological world, which is tech driven, we are still handling many complexities which can easily be resolved by the minds which are advanced and innovative. This is the leading force behind the challenges of our Women startups which might disrupt a culture and the economy that is becoming more difficult for the women to access capital.
