Fit Small Business rates best, worst cities for female entrepreneurs

At the start of 2019, Fit Small Business released a study showcasing the best 50 states for female entrepreneurs. That study was initially prompted by notable disadvantages women face in the entrepreneurial world — including pay and benefit disparities — and led to the question: What are the states where women would be most likelyto overcome these disadvantages and find the greatest success as entrepreneurs?

While we chose states to showcase our initial study, the organization now says that its subsequent research found that several key success factors can be more accurately represented on the city level. These include safety ratings, availability of professional resources and organizations, social and leisure life opportunities, and market size.

Armed with that information, Fit Small Business has now listed the five best and five worst cities for female entrepreneurs. Click here to see the list and learn more about the methodology.
