Around 30 percent of small businesses in America are owned by women. However, those businesses employ only 6 percent of the overall workforce and generate less than 4 percent of business revenues. In order to help women who are looking to open their business, GoodCall has looked into some statistics and has come up with a list of the best 10 cities for women entrepreneurs in the U.S.
They looked at the overall number of businesses per capita in each city; the percentage of women-owned businesses; the difference in education attainment between men and women; as well as the GDP and the unemployment rates in the different cities.
