The best climate for entrepreneurs: Part I
This year’s index has been expanded to include 44 different measures covering the broad areas of taxes, regulation, energy costs, health-insurance mandates, government spending and employment, state liability systems, education reforms, and property rights and protections. It is the most comprehensive ranking of the states in terms of policies affecting entrepreneurs and investors, and therefore the economy and job creation.
The SBE Council’s interactive map provides the state-by-state breakdown.
On a related note, our region also scored very well in Bloomberg’s rankings of the cities with the biggest growth in tech jobs.
