One third of company owners in Slovakia are women, said Margita Barošová from the Labour and Family Research Institute in reporting statistics concerning company ownership in Slovakia and the EU on May 23, the TASR newswire wrote.

“Women generally prefer employee status to that of an entrepreneur,” said Barošová, as quoted by TASR. She added, however, that women are beginning to become more involved in owning businesses. “Finally, an equal number of female and male entrepreneurs launched new businesses in 2009.”

That year also saw the biggest number of female company owners, as 27 percent of entrepreneurs were women. However, Slovakia still lags behind other EU countries, where the average figure was 30.4 percent.

Barošová attributed this to men launching their own companies in Slovakia much earlier than women, as 57.4 percent of male owners, but only 46.6 percent of female owners, had founded their companies before 2000. Women entrepreneurs prefer the service sector (92.1 percent), followed by industry (5.1 percent) and agriculture (2.7 percent) while men are more so in industry (55 percent), services (40.2 percent) and agriculture (4.8 percent) according to the information released by Barošová.
