The state of Texas has always been known for its Texas-size hospitality to visitors. Likewise, Texas provides a supportive environment to help local entrepreneurs grow the state's small business sector. Small businesses seem to thrive due to the strong local economies of many cities, including Houston, the availability of well-educated workers and local community support from residents of the state.
According to a recent report, the entrepreneur-friendly environment in the state is being noticed because the state's capital city, Austin, was selected as one of the best cities in the United States to start an entrepreneurial venture. The other cities featured in the list are Arlington, Virginia, Denver, Colorado, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. As the report suggests, several factors have allowed Austin inclusion on this list.
