BEST CITIES TO START A BUSINESS IN TEXAS
A combination of capital, innovation and opportunity earns Texas a strong argument for being considered the top state in which to start a business. With a rapidly expanding economy and thriving urban centers, there’s seemingly no end to the state’s prosperity.
Texas’ GDP is 1.6 trillion, which would place it above Canada in a global ranking--if the Lone Star state were the sovereign nation it sometimes wishes it were--and yet its economy continues to grow and add jobs at a rate faster than the national average.
Traditionally an oil powerhouse, Texas’ tech industry has taken off in the past decade as young entrepreneurs and giants such as Dell and AT&T alike are drawn in by forgiving tax rates and a dynamic labor force.
Austin, where Texan’s business-minded principles mesh comfortably with a spirit of innovation and disregard for norms supplied by the city’s concentration of ethically-minded young creatives, is challenging Silicon Valley as the top spot for tech start-ups. The city’s businesses brought in over $12 billion of venture capital on its own in the past ten years.

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.
