london 2

The Dell Women Entrepreneur Cities Index (WE Cities) has revealed that London is one of the most female friendly cities for business in the world.

The LiveWIRE supported region came third in the rankings, which measure a city’s ability to attract and enable high-potential women entrepreneurs, with US cities New York and San Francisco taking first and second place.

The rankings measured a number of influencing factors, including: culture; talent; capital opportunities; and, technology.

Other featured LiveWIRE cities included Amsterdam, Netherlands, in 19th place, and Johannesburg, South Africa, in 28th place.

Commenting on the report, Karen Quintos, EVP and chief customer officer at Dell says, “When impediments to female entrepreneurship are removed, there is a dramatic uplift in a city’s economic prospects. Globally, women’s entrepreneurship rates are growing more than 10 percent each year. In fact, women are as likely, or more likely, than men to start businesses in many markets. However, financial, cultural and political barriers can limit the success of these businesses.

“We can collectively improve the landscape for high-potential women entrepreneurs, which in turn dramatically lifts a city’s economic prospects – as what is good for women is good for the economy.”
