Top 10 states to start a business: N.Carolina, Florida, and Virginia named best states in U.S. to start and run a business

A recent Pollina study named the following most Pro Business in America:

  1. North Carolina
  2. Florida
  3. Virginia
  4. South Carolina
  5. Wyoming

The Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro-Business States study examines twenty-nine factors relative to states’ efforts to be pro-business, and is the most comprehensive examination of states to date. The study is limited to factors over which state government has control. The list reflects state leadership that truly understands the importance of producing the best job opportunities available for their constituents. The state governments at the top of the list understand that they must be very pro-active in the international battle to keep and attract jobs.

See Pollina’s website to get full details of the report.  Last year, Pollina named Virginia as the most Pro Business state in the United States.
