Which Countries Are Leading the Way with Female Entrepreneurs?

To create a list of the countries with the most female business owners, the CEOWORLD magazine reviewed the data from Mastercard’s Index of Women Entrepreneurs to find out which countries are leading the way when it comes to women-owned businesses.
The findings show that while the U.S. has the right conditions for female-owned businesses to thrive, women in America’s motivation to start and run a business is low as compared to the countries with high index score.
Interestingly enough, Ghana is top on the list.  The United States placed 23 out of 57 countries studied.  About a quarter of America's entrepreneurs are women.
