The 2015 Global Women Entrepreneur Leaders Scorecard sponsored by Dell Inc. is a new data-driven diagnostic tool that identifies the impediments to high-impact female entrepreneurship and introduces actionable steps that can be taken to improve the conditions for high-impact female entrepreneurship development at the country level.

In addition, we highlight global best practices such as policies, programs and breakthrough initiatives that jumpstart the growth of high-impact female entrepreneurs. The study measures 31 countries across the globe, accounting for 70% of the world’s female population and 76% of the world’s GDP.
