Over the last decade, entrepreneurship has seen a rapid and invigorating surge, with particular focus on women entrepreneurs. According to Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM), 104 million women started new business ventures in 59 different global economies in 2010. In the same year, another 83 million women were managing business ventures that were previously launched at least three and a half years earlier. More recently, as specified by GEM’s 2011 Global Report, the number of entrepreneurs around the world is nearing 400 million, with 163 million early-stage women entrepreneurs.
In 2003, President and CEO Shunee Yee was also counted in the mix, as co-founder of CSOFT International. In the last nine years, not only have employees, global partners, and clients of CSOFT been able to witness Shunee’s dedication, business acumen, drive and creativity, she’s also been recognized by the larger global business community.
In 2012, Shunee was selected by Fortune as one of the ten Most Powerful Women (MPW) Entrepreneurs of 2012. As CSOFT prepares to enter its tenth year, we are both humbled by next year’s milestone and excited to continue building on what we’ve created thus far.
