Kevin O'Leary: Why I Prefer to Invest in Women-Led Businesses
On stage at Inc.'s Women's Summit, the famous investor discussed how he chooses businesses on the show.

When Kevin O'Leary chooses companies to invest in on Shark Tank, he simply follows the data. It's a strategy that has led him to prefer women-led companies.

"It's not because I'm sexist," O'Leary said at the Inc. Women's Summit in New York City on Monday. "But because I'm getting better returns."

O'Leary has invested in more than 40 companies across Shark Tank's nine seasons. His company, O'Shares Investment, found that about 95 percent of the women-led companies met their financial targets, compared with just 65 percent for businesses with male leaders.

"That's because men were setting targets that were not achievable. Maybe that's the aggressive nature of how they work," O'Leary said. "Women don't waste time."
