These Are the Best Places in the World to be a Woman Entrepreneur

Monday, December 2, 2019

The United States has emerged as the best place globally to be a woman entrepreneur, according to a new report from Mastercard.

The North American nation narrowly surpassed last year’s leader, New Zealand, to rank as the global powerhouse for female founders in Mastercard’s Index of Women Entrepreneurs 2019, which was released Wednesday.

The study, which drew on public data from bodies including the International Labor Organization, UNESCO and the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, found that the U.S. ranked most highly in aggregate across three main segments considered conducive to women’s entrepreneurship.
