Having women on your staff can help your business startup suceed.

Having women on the staff of a startup can help it succeed, a new study from Dow Jones finds.

The study, released last week, analyzed about 167,500 executives and 2,200 venture-backed companies that received funding between 1997 and 2011.

The report describes the low number of women who are leading these venture-backed companies: 1.3 percent of the companies have a female founder, 6.5 percent have a female CEO and 20 percent have one or more C-level female executives, Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal reports.
