The Best City in America for Women Entrepreneurs? OURS! | NAWBO

What's the best U.S. city for women entrepreneurs?  Of the 692 women-led companies in the Inc. 5000, the Washington, D.C. metro area boasts 74 of them.  That's 23 percent of the total, higher than that of any other metro area with at least 10 women-led companies on the list.  Second place goes to New York, with 20 percent.  Overall, 13 percent of Inc. 5000 entrepreneurs are women.

There are other reasons D.C. has been such fertile ground to entrepreneurs.  First is the fact that the housing bust didn't devastate D.C. the way it did other parts of the country.  There's a constant transient population of people moving to and from the area for government jobs, which means people are always buying, selling, and remodeling.  -- Mina Fies
