Starting a business? You may want to consider moving to another state. Looking at trends in the development of women-owned businesses, it is apparent that some parts of the country are magnets for entrepreneurship and rapid-growth, while other state business ecosystems are not as flourishing. In an effort to better understand what makes a successful entrepreneurial ecosystem, the Council has launched the ecosystem project, and has been traveling to various cities across the country to learn more about the support system needed to facilitate high-growth in women-owned businesses. Recently, the Council released state factsheets, which reveal 2012 survey results of business owners on a state-by-state basis. These fact sheets illustrate, compositionally, how the business sector in each state is broken up—by race/ethnicity and industry—as well as fast facts such as percentage of women-owned businesses and generated employment opportunities. However, these state fact sheets only give a broad overview of each state’s business ecosystem; they do not provide adequate information as to what, exactly, each state supports or, in some cases, hinders women’s entrepreneurship.
