Welcome to The Gender Index Report 2024. Produced through a unique combination of leading academic research, big data and cutting-edge technology, discover the latest trends in female entrepreneurship across the UK in 2023. Covering over 8.8 million officers from nearly five million active companies, the data has been segmented and analysed nationally; for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland; and the English regions, for targeted decision-making. Our scope has widened to include access to investment capital and secured debt, plus import and export activity. This is in addition to analysis of ethnic minority-led companies, the generation of the leadership, sector, fast growth and more. In an election year, this data will be invaluable in shaping policy to address the gender imbalance in UK business – now and into the future.
