Disturbing truth: Male entrepreneurs are more likely to succeed than female
Gender has a more significant impact on decision-makers than a person’s experience or the topic she’s discussed, according to a new study conducted by professors from Harvard, MIT and Wharton.
Researchers describe finding “a profound and persistent preference for entrepreneurial ventures pitched by men.”
The impact of gender was definitive in a video analysis of 90 pitches at startup competitions. Over a three-year period, male entrepreneurs were 60% more likely than females to receive funding prizes.
But the bias extends beyond investors or bosses.
In another study, nonprofessional evaluators overwhelmingly chose a pitch narrated by a male over one narrated by a female (68% versus 32%), despite the fact that the pitches were identical.
