I think there are many differences, starting with a woman's way of thinking, her willingness to look for new opportunities and more. Besides, I don't think women like to take risks. They spend more time with their families and children, and would not embark on a high-risk business.

I believe there are differences related to social expectations: for each gender, society expects certain careers to be undertaken. Sometimes these prejudices can lead to various obstacles in the realization of one's entrepreneurial project. Specifically, as regards the stereotyped role of women and for certain professions, there may be some major difficulties relating to the recognition of autonomy, effectiveness, reliability. But through real action, these obstacles can slowly be broken down; I believe the process has already begun.

I'd rather say that there are many differences in the way our society imagines male and female entrepreneurs. Although we no longer live in a pathriarcal society, many countries and many people still have stereotyped ideas around the roles that must be played by men and women in the workplace and, more specifically, in the business world. It seems almost impossible for women to be as competitive as men. And yet, there are many examples of creative and forceful women who carried out their entrepreneurial projects and successfully built their empires (I think of women in the fashion world, in the agri-food sector or in the communications sector).
Maybe the differences only exist in the minds of many.
