As we all know, anyone can start a business anytime, anywhere however it requires a whole lot of things for women to start a business depending upon where and which city across the globe is she starting a business for example it takes lot of courage and mental strength for a woman in any city of Afghanistan to start her own business startup while starting a business in US by a woman far easier than starting off in Berlin or Delhi.
Business startups are booming around the world! Although how many of those startups are founded by women? Most of the unicorn or big startup we all know are all founded by men be it Facebook, Uber, AirBnB, Xiaomi or Flipkart.
The UK’s Expert Market recently reviewed the results of the Global Startup Ecosystem Ranking report by Compass to develop a list of the top 20 cities in the world for female entrepreneurs.
In the research, demographic data collected interestingly included the percentage of startups founded by women. UK’s Expert Market further created a list of ’20 Best Cities For Female Startups’ based on this data and from this ranked the top 20 cities in the world for startups founded by women and the percentage averages in each continent.
Here are the 20 best cities for female startups:
- San Francisco (Silicon Valley)
- Los Angeles
- Tel Aviv
- Kuala Lumpur
- New York
- Sao Paulo
It is also worth noting China, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea were omitted from the report due to difficulties in retrieving data from relevant participants. However, the report suggests that Bejing and Shanghai would have made it into the top 20 startup ecosystems.
