Most start ups fail because they are under capitalized. Given current uncertainties with regards to cost of regulatory compliance, it is difficult to forecast the capital requirements for a new business. I would be very cautious trying to start a business with significant capital requirements. Fortunately, I am a CPA, and my business depends on my personal services rather than capital investments.

Why not use it though? I'll be able to get my company started in the next year or two and I guarantee itll be under my wifes name because of all the tax breaks we would get. In your case if your company would be owned by a woman AND minority, thats big money there.

What kind of breaks would be available if the women owned the business? I am fixing to start doing some work for a buddy of mine doing computer maintenance from home? Would I benefit from starting a business in her name while I do the work?

Some cities require a certain % of work to go to small minority or women held businesses. It's not a major plus, but it doesn't hurt. There is absolutly no benefit if you are a white male on the application.
