Nashville Ranks Near Top For Minority Entrepreneurs 3-25-2011

Forbes Magazine reports Nashville is the third-best city in the country for minority entrepreneurs.
The magazine cited growth statistics showing the immigrant population soared 83 percent between 2000 and 2008. That growth rate is the fastest in the nation among big cities, and it accounted for 44 percent of the city's overall growth during that time.
Nashville also ranked sixth overall for self-employment for Asians and fourth for Hispanics.
The magazine's formula takes into account immigrant growth rate, affordable housing and rising household incomes for its ranking.
The No. 1 city overall for minority entrepreneurs was Atlanta, followed by Baltimore.
