Which State Is Best for Small Business? (Infographic)

Thinking of starting up? Find out which states are the best (and worst) for small business.

Some states are better launch pads for startups than others -- a lot better. They make licensing a snap, keep taxes low and go out of their way to help entrepreneurs succeed with training and guidance. A survey earlier this year from Thumbtack.com and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation revealed the best -- and, ugh, most challenging -- states and cities for entrepreneurs. Below, find out which states earned an A- or better grade -- and the laggards with D+ grades or worse.

Within the average-to-mediocre states for small businesses, the survey also uncovered several entrepreneurial oases -- in other words, cities where startups can thrive.

  • Colorado Springs, Colo.
  • Indianapolis
  • Las Vegas
  • Minneapolis
  • Nashville, Tenn.
  • Raleigh, N.C.
