Data collected over the last five years from 2018 to 2023 showed certain positions where female entrepreneurs earn more than male entrepreneurs. Women in creative fields such as writers, musicians and directors have successfully priced their work higher than men. These findings show that female entrepreneurs work in different fields, unlike their male counterparts who focus on specific areas.
UKKO.fi’s survey on light entrepreneurship shows that women are motivated to become entrepreneurs by the possibility of additional income (33.1%), entrepreneurship (21.2%) and the freedom offered by entrepreneurship (21.6%). Light entrepreneurship is seen as an easy way to earn extra income during parental leave or later in life. In addition, 46.6% of female light entrepreneurs consider a four-day work week as an ideal work week, and they want flexibility between work and private life.
The share of female entrepreneurs among UKKO.fi users is still growing, and the number of women using the service as entrepreneurs has increased in recent years to 43 percent of all users, compared to just under a third two years ago. UKKO.fi aims to encourage everyone, regardless of age, gender or nationality, to become an entrepreneur. The task of both companies and society is to break down barriers to entrepreneurship and pave the way for gender equality in working life.
