Non-working women are just as likely to start a business as those in work, unlike men in the same position, according to Barclays quarterly start-ups and closures survey. Men who are out of work are more likely to be unemployed or ill, while non-economically active women include a large proportion who are voluntarily outside employment; mothers, women taking a career break or carers. These groups may be ideally placed to identify business opportunities such as niche retailing, childcare or providing household services. These types of businesses have seen a 29% increase in the last year. See the report at:
