“Edmond took the #30 position, outranking other Oklahoma cities in the top 50 including Oklahoma City and Yukon,” says Eppie Vojt, founder of GoodCall. “The city of Edmond earned its rank by having a strong post-recession economy and a high density of female business-owners, outweighing many other places in the country.”

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.

“We are excited to hear that Edmond has been recognized as one of the 2015 Best U. S. Cities for Women Entrepreneurs,” says Ken Moore, President and CEO of the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce. “The Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce prides itself on the programs and events we conduct for women in business.
