While some people say that women startups and hard to find, they are out there and many of them are receiving an increasing amount of media attention. Many of the women-run startups highlighted in the media are Harvard startups run by MBA graduates, mostly in the area of fashion (as mentioned in a recent xConomy article). In addition to fashion, however, Harvard Business School women have created a wide range of web startups that address a range of everyday problems such as finding the right babysitter, and finding the right employees for your business.
The fashion industry generates $20 billion of revenue each year. In the United States alone, over $250 billion is spenton fashion anually. Over 4 million people work in the fashion industry, which means that fashion lovers who are better at business than design still have a chance to work in the industry. While the fashion industry is concentrated in New York City, California, Italy, Miami, Milan, London and Paris, fashion industry employers are located in most parts of the world.
