Dublin still has a long way to improve for women entrepreneurs as city ranks 34th out of 50 cities

by Emma Nolan

DUBLIN has been ranked 34th in the top 50 Global Cities for Women Entrepreneurs.
The findings were announced at the eight annual Dell Women Entrepreneur Network Summit, with the study’s results ranking cities based on the impact of local policies, programmes and characteristics in addition to national laws and customs.
It found that New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area, London, Boston and Stockholm are the top-five cities for high-potential women entrepreneurs.
Dublin’s placement saw it just behind Nairobi and ahead of Warsaw.
The city’s notable strengths include its status as the Digital Capital of Europe, generous maternity leave policy, high-quality education and accessibility to technology training, with areas for improvement including the city’s high cost of living and childcare supports.
Elizabeth Gore, entrepreneur-in-residence at Dell, said: “Each of the cities on this list can learn from one another and encourage political change to attract and support women entrepreneurs.
“The resulting change will be felt at not just a city level, but around the world as we develop an ecosystem where all entrepreneurs can thrive regardless of gender.”
