PTC ranks #9 out of 405 as best city in U.S. for women entrepreneurs to launch a business

Peachtree City was ranked as one of the best cities in the U.S. for women entrepreneurs to launch a business, according a new report by data-science group GoodCall. Peachtree City took the #9 position, outranking other Georgia cities like Duluth and Cartersville.
“Peachtree City ranked among the top 10 cities for women entrepreneurs due to a great economy, a large number of female business owners, and strong educational values, making it a great place for any entrepreneur to start a business,” says Eppie Vojt, founder of GoodCall.
A total of 405 cities were evaluated on the metrics of core economic strength, business climate for women, professional networking potential and female educational values.
“Peachtree City is a very family- and children-oriented community and has provided a very good environment for women to start businesses,” says Peachtree City Mayor Vanessa Fleisch. “My sense is that women in our city see being a part of the business community as an extension of what they already do within the community as a whole.”
“Peachtree City is an extraordinary environment for business in general, and we are particularly proud to be acknowledged as a leading location for female entrepreneurs,” adds Emily Poole, Manager of Business Retention and Expansion for the Fayette County Development Authority. “This designation confirms what we already know: Peachtree City is a wonderful place to live, work, and play!”
The report also features advice for women entrepreneurs provided by national experts from the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership, The National Women’s Business Council and the American Association of University Women.
