Let's hear if for the ladies, takin' care of business. According to FitSMallBusiness, Colorado is the number one state for female-owned businesses to flourish. 

Out-ranking California, Washington and New York, Colorado took the top spot. The reason, FitSmallBusiness says, is because Colorado has 'a balance of economic advantages and female-friendly policies is ideal for the woman business-owner—and Colorado, with its very competitive corporate tax rate, access to technology meccas and abundant women’s resources is the very model of this concept.'

In other words, we've got the resources, the technology and the skills to make it happen. 

In a 2015 report, Fort Collins was recognized by NerdWallet as a top city for female business owners, ranking 19th in the country's top 20.
