New research reveals number of women-led scaleup companies

Research by Doteveryone and Founders4Schools shows that there are approximately 760 women-led firms in the UK that are growing at a median rate of 30 per cent. Leeds tops the table of cities with most female-led businesses. Almost 70 per cent of fast-growing businesses run by women are based outside London. “It’s important to flush out the myth that women are not creating companies that grow,” says Baroness Lane-Fox in this Sunday Times article.
