LA #7 For Women Entrepreneurs

Thumbtack, an employment website, has determined that Louisiana is the #7 best state in America for women to start a business. To get their ranking, Thumbtack analysts studied their proprietary marketplace data to determine the places where women are most optimistic about their prospects (i.e., where they’re happiest running a business), surveying 20,557 women from January to June 2016 who own small businesses on Thumbtack.


The Top 10 States for Women Entrepreneurs are:

1. Mississippi
2. Georgia
3. Virginia
4. Kentucky
5. Tennessee
6. Alabama
7. Louisiana
8. Missouri
9. Michigan
10. Utah

Further, Louisiana came in #2 for the question of, “Does local government do enough to support small businesses owned and operated by women.”
