THE TOP 10 METRO AREAS FOR FEMALE ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Rather interesting article about femal entrepreneurs. Is your Metro area on the list? 

  1. Boulder, Colorado
  2. Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Connecticut
  3. Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, Colorado
  4. Santa Cruz-Watsonville, California
  5. Santa Rosa, California
  6. San Luis Obispo, California
  7. San Francisco-Oakland, California
  8. Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota
  9. Portland, Maine
  10. Fort Collins, Colorado

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.
