Go.Verizon.com Announces 4th Annual 50 Best Small Cities to Start a Small Business

Go.Verizon.com has released its report, “The Best Small Cities to Start a Small Business,” and the City of Leander has impressed again. The metrics Go.Verison.com analyzed when compiling their list of the top 50 small cities in the nation for small businesses included education level of the local workforce, in-city commute times, income per capita, broadband access, availability of SBA loans, and overall tax friendliness. From there, they weighted each factor on a 0-100 scale and compiled a ranking system for cities with populations between 50,000 and 75,000.

“This past year, small businesses have faced more uncertainty than ever before,” said Clayton Tarantino, a small business expert for Go.Verizon.com. “It’s a testament to the strength of these cities that they have supported their small business communities through such a difficult time.”

In total, eight Texas Cities made the list, including fellow Central-Texas-City Pflugerville. Be sure to read the full report here and let us know why you love Central Texas in the comments!
