BEST CITIES TO START A BUSINESS IN INDIANA

Indiana is consistently recognized as one of the best Midwestern states to do business. With the second lowest cost of living in the nation and forgiving tax rates, the state does well to limit the financial strain on developing businesses. Indiana also boasts an excellent talent pool of graduates from University of Notre Dame, Purdue and Indiana University, all nationally recognized schools.

Always an agricultural giant, Indiana has recently fostered a number of startups hoping to revolutionize its industry and farming networks. One example is Tyner Pond Farm, which purchases pasture-raised cattle, poultry and pigs from a number of regional farms and sells them to wholesalers. People are able to use an app to purchase meat which is delivered without additional cost.

Due to its aging network of distribution of meat products and domination by several large companies, the demand for greater technological integration and less wasteful production in the meat industry is high and Indiana provides great opportunities for those up to the challenge.

ABOUT HOW TO START AN LLC

I'm an entrepreneur myself. When talking to others who want to start their own business, they often get wrapped up in the nitty gritty of paperwork and forming the company. They forget that what really matters is customers, sales, and profit. That's why I created How to Start an LLC.org: a simple resource and guide so you can spend less time on forming your company, and more time on building it.

My lawyers want me to remind you that I'm not a lawyer and that I'm completely unqualified to offer legal advice. This site is meant to serve as a reference for you on your journey. If you have questions or concerns, please contact a qualified lawyer (or accountant) to help you. Also, as a general rule, never take random legal advice on the internet.
