The city of Annapolis, MD was ranked #5 in a new report by data-science group GoodCall as one of the best cities in the U.S. for women entrepreneurs to launch their business.
“Women’s entrepreneurship is on the rise across the country, in many different industries. However, women-owned businesses still fall behind in terms of overall employment and revenue generated,” says Eppie Vojt founder of GoodCall. “We wanted to find cities that foster growth and provide support for women entrepreneurs.”
Annapolis ranked highly for good educational values, a strong economy, and a large number of women-owned businesses – 32.29% of the city’s establishments are owned by women.
A total of 405 cities were evaluated on the metrics of core economic strength, business climate for women, professional networking potential and female education values.
The report also features advice for women entrepreneurs provided by national experts from the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership, The National Women’s Business Council and the American Association of University Women.
