Rather interesting article about femal entrepreneurs. Is your Metro area on the list?
While Boulder has a high gender pay gap, it also had the highest number of women-owned business per 100 residents out of the whole list. SBA loans per 100,000 was also substantially higher in our top 10 compared to all cities—24.36 compared to 14.56.
Could it be that the gender pay gap is forcing women out of corporate ranks and into entrepreneurship? It's an interesting theory, but it would be out of our scope to presume causation in any of these figures. Boulder has offset its gender pay gap by having lots of women owned business, but again we can't really make any normative statements on causation.
