These Are the Best Countries for Female Entrepreneurs
According to a new study from Dell, not all countries were created equal for female entrepreneurs. Turns out if you want to be a #girlboss and work for yourself, you should consider moving to the U.S., Canada, or Australia, unless you already live there, of course—in that case, yay! These three nations are considered the best for female business owners, and at the bottom were Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India. However, even in the top-rated countries, the company’s Global Women Entrepreneur Leaders Scorecard report also pointed out the challenges women face when starting their own enterprise. Each country was given a score based on its business environment, access to resources, the pipeline for female entrepreneurship, and others. The U.S. scored just a 71 out of 100 possible points. More than 70% of the countries scored below 50.
