Today more and more women are breaking out of the traditional corporate world to become entrepreneurs
These women are building companies-from the ground up-and finding new ways to innovate in technology. And as the number of women owned businesses increases, we see an influx of new companies entering the market which, thanks to old-fashioned competition for customers, drives innovation and creativity.
Recently, I spoke at a conference focused on preparing female scientists and engineers for successful transition into entrepreneurship. The conference held by the Committee on Women in Science, Engineering and Medicine, offered a session to discuss the concept of "intrepreneurship" as an alternative to the traditional entrepreneurial thinking.
