The Bisnode Index of Women Influence – BIWI – is a unique index used to compare various countries according to the influence women have on their economies. The influence of women is measured according to four parameters: share in the number of companies, share in the number of employees, share in revenues and share in net profits. The share of the number of women-owned companies compared to the total number of companies is the base for calculating the BIWI. This base is then multiplied by the volume of business of women-owned companies, which is measured by the number of employees, revenues and earned net profits.
