Ohio is one of the best places for women to start a business, according to a new ranking.
FitSmallBusiness.com ranked the Buckeye State No. 2 on its list of the top 10 states for female entrepreneurs.
The ranking was based on general business climate/opportunity, number of female-owned businesses, economic and financial health, and safety and well-being for women in each state.
Ohio’s high business growth density, low cost of living and lack of corporate taxes were mentioned as advantages.
Texas, one of only two states to hold a place in the top 10 for the second year in a row, topped the list as a result of its business-friendly climate, lack of corporate and income taxes, and high rate of startup success alongside its below-average cost of living.
