A personal financial website called NerdWallet has named Raleigh as the Number 8 best city for female entrepreneurs. It seems that others have taken notice of the fact that the number of businesses here is growing and that a large number of them are run by women. Isn't that great! Some of their criteria involved having a thriving economy. The level of education is important and seems to co-orelate to having an entrepreneurial spirit. Raleigh was 8th, and the other cities, from 1 on to 10 are: San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Minneapolis, Portland OR, Atlanta, Austin, (Raleigh at 8), Denver at 9, and San Diego at 10.
Raleigh-and often the Triangle-rank high on a lot of lists for businesses, from quality of life to regulatory environment to cost of living to high-tech, and more.
So, tell me again why we need to compete with South Carolina?
