5 Women Entrepreneurs Who are Shaking Up Education

Women entrepreneurs still face unique challenges in businesses around the world. It’s even harder if women decide to become independent entrepreneurs. Still, there’s no denying that their influence is growing with each passing day. Despite all the difficulties, an increasing number of women entrepreneurs are making their presence felt in different learning areas. These include online training and education and mentoring young people. An increasing number of women are getting into entrepreneurial roles.

With all this in mind, we’ll be looking at five women entrepreneurs who are shaking up the global education scene today, but before that, we want to shed some light on building successful women-centric businesses online, despite the daily challenges and difficulties that women face in the modern business world. Take a look:


Why Build a Business Online?

Well, first of all, it’s much cheaper than doing it the regular way. You have the accessibility. Anyone can do it and attending online training courses is often free in many cases. Both online mentors and trainees don’t need to spend extra money or be away from their family and friends to do it. Anyone can access an online training course, regardless of where they live.

On the other hand, those who manage their business online can work from any location with Internet access. Probably the biggest reason why a number of women entrepreneurs are choosing the online way is that it’s much easier to find reasonable financing without having to confront gender bias.

Instead of facing these challenges every day, most women decided to start building their businesses online. Today, those same women are sharing their knowledge with hundreds and thousands of young women who are facing the same troubles as they did in the past. By doing so, these young women can do much more than just attend online courses, they can actually make an impact of their own.

So, without any further ado, here are five inspiring women entrepreneurs who teach people how to properly grow their own online business.



1. Amy Port

2. Courtney Williams

Founder and CEO of TORSH, Courtney Williams strongly believes that a strong system of education benefits society as well as individual students. Her focus is fully shifted to why there’s no visible impact on student outcomes despite the fact that the U.S. government spent billions of dollars on teacher training. This persuaded her to establish TORSH, a company that offers a variety of data platform tools. These include online training software and video-based online community with the main goal of helping classroom teachers by facilitating feedback, coaching, and observation. Courtney’s main purpose is to drive home the need for better teachers and improved education that will impact not only students but the wider society.



3. Janet Coyle

Managing director at Founders4Schools, Janet Coyle is one of the pioneers of advancing education. This is due to her different and a very unique approach. She doesn’t focus solely on student preparations in traditional subjects, which is the very foundation of education as we know it. Instead, she and her company focus on recognizing the benefits of bringing tech entrepreneurs into schools. Her main goal is to prepare and inspire students to recognize their own positions in the future economy. Janet Coyle fully realized that traditional norms in education and future careers have changed. The only way to adequately embrace that change is by learning and following the advice of experienced tech entrepreneurs who share their experiences and broaden the student’s horizons.


4. Beate Chelette

Beate Chelette is a consummate entrepreneur, a respected online career coach, and the founder of The Women’s Code. Her company is fully dedicated to providing unique guidelines for career, and professional and personal success.

Summing Up

All women who make an effort to nurture enterprises of their own face the same problem: male-centric business world. Still, there is an increasing number of women entrepreneurs who can make a significant impact on modern society, even dictate new trends in important fields such as education. Women who aspire to build their own online businesses should learn to shape their own individual strengths and manage their weaknesses to achieve ultimate success.
