Consumer website NerdWallet named Raleigh as one of the best cities for women entrepreneurs.
NerdWallat examined entrepreneurial climates, percent of businesses in the city that are woman owned, the local economy, and other elements to create the list of top 10 cities for women entrepreneurs.
Raleigh was listed at number eight on the list.
“Raleigh’s low unemployment rate and high number of businesses per person make it a great city for female entrepreneurs, “NerdWallet stated. “Entrepreneurs can check out organizations like Raleigh Business and Professional Women for resources. In addition, the city of Raleigh has adopted a Small Disadvantaged Minority and Woman Owned Business Program, promising to award 15 percent of the city’s contracts to minority-owned and women-owned businesses.”
San Francisco tops the list, followed by Seattle, Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, Portland, Ore., Atlanta and Austin, Texas. Denver and San Diego followed Raleigh.
