Interestingly, Atlanta (or any other Southeast cities) were not even represented on this list of cities with vibrant start up communities. But for women looking to start businesses, Atlanta has emerged among the top 10 best places nationally. Intuit’s research found more than a third of businesses in Atlanta are owned by women, and there are 9.8 businesses per 100 Georgia residents.
This info comes as a surprise to exactly no one in Dunwoody. Most of the start-ups I have interacted with were created by women (Lady Jane, Emily G's, and Dunwoody Bakery, for example). The majority of the heavy lifting at the Chamber of Commerce is done by women too.
