Last week at the Fast Tech 50 Luncheon, I mentioned that Houston is the #2 city in the US for Women Entrepreneurs.  Building upon that momentum for our female entrepreneurs, I came across this blog post from Richard Branson, CEO of Virgin Atlantic.

He cites a Credit Suisse report, “[It] suggested that businesses with at least one woman on the board have outperformed those with no women on the board by 26% in the past six years.”

Branson was also featured in an Entrepreneur.com article speaking about the same topic. He mainly focuses on observations from a British/European perspective, but I think his thoughts can easily be applied to the U.S. I agree with his thoughts and thought you would be interested in his perspective.
