The recent Global Startup Ecosystem (GSE) Ranking report found that “the trend for female entrepreneurs is significantly up,” with the number of new businesses started by women rising by 80 per cent in the past three years. While startups in the past were sprung forth nearly entirely from places like Silicon Valley and Boston, the span of locations today includes cities from all over the globe — making it excellent news pretty much no matter where you live.
The rise of crowdfunding has seen a “democratisation” in the business world, allowing more and more women to successfully start their own companies.
Expert Market has drawn data based on the GSE Ranking report to rank the top 20 cities in the world for startups founded by women and the percentage averages in each continent. Chicago (my hometown) just happens to be No. 1!
