Best Places To Start A Business.

I just finished reading an article over at CNN/Money about the 50 best places to launch a business and thought I would point it out to those of you thinking of doing the same. While some of the expected locales are listed, like NYC, Charlotte NC and Connecticut, there are a ton of places on the list that I had not even ever heard of! The cities and towns are organized by size – Top Large Places, Top Mid Places, Top Small Places. So what Top 10 large cities made the list?

1. Oklahoma City, OK
2. Pittsburgh, PA
3. Raleigh, NC
4. Houston, TX
5. Hartford, CT
6. Washington, DC
7. Charlotte, NC
8. Austin, TX
9. New York City, NY
10. Baltimore, MD

Yep, Oklahoma City, OK is the #1 large city in America to start a business. You learn something new every day! If you want to read the rest of the lists and why each place was chosen, check out the article. Here is a map overview of all 50 places:

    Who wants to open a business in California? It might become a failed state tomorrow! 😉

  3. Hmm, no cities on the West Coast made the list… maybe all of those tech companies in Silicon Valley should consider relocating… 🙂

  4. I’m always a little skeptical on these results. I would really like to k now the questions that were asked in the survey that came up with the results. Sometimes the questions can really affect the results
