It's not all about San Francisco and New York City -- there’s a number of up and coming cities around the country for your new business venture.

Some well-known big businesses have set up offices in some of these cities as well, leading the way for smaller ones to follow -- with Apple and Facebook in Austin, Dell and HP in Manchester, N.H., and Johnson & Johnson and J.P. Morgan in Jersey City, N.J.

Check out Colonial Life’s infographic below to scope some potential cities for your startup.
