Best Place to Start a Business:Small Business Friendly States.

What is the best place to start a small business? 

Ever wonder which states were the most “small business friendly“?

I’ve included a link from a study done by the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council for the 2007 year. I’m not sure but I think the 2008 study will be out some time in March.

Factors included in ranking the best places to start a business  include things like taxes, health care regulations, state use taxes, and state laws and regulations.

Thanks for the information. What is the better place to reside in USA when you want to run an online business which is portable but it could be beneficial if there was a decent offline ability to network as well as online?

That’s a question I have few days now.

Merry Christmas!
