The San Francisco Bay Area, CNBC reported on July 16, 2019, has overtaken New York City as the number one best place in the world for a woman entrepreneur to live. Over the past three years, the effort to eliminate the bro-culture has begun to pay off.
San Francisco increased access to funding for women and tech developments.
Five main metrics are reported on to understand how each city is ranked; these five are metrics, talent, capital, culture, and technology. San Francisco surpassed all parameters well enough to become the number one listed city in the world.
Number two, and still pulling strong for ladies in business, is New York City. They are followed by London, Boston, and Los Angeles. Washington DC, Seattle, Paris, Toronto, and Stockholm rounded out the top 10 cities in the world.
