Results 2014s Top Cities for Small Business
San Jose remains the center of innovation and
new business job creation in the
U.S. Surprisingly, Detroit-Dearborn scored
very well in large part because of the auto
industrys rebound and the growing technology
sector in the area. While revenue figures are
usually higher for New York-based companies, so
are the costs of operation. The minimum wage is
higher, and now Mayor DeBlasio has expanded paid
sick leave. This hinders small business
owners,

While revenue figures are usually higher for New
York-based companies, so are the costs of
operation. The minimum wage is higher, and now
Mayor DeBlasio has expanded paid sick leave.
This hinders small business owners, When fixed
and marginal costs are high, it impacts cash flow
significantly. There is also some fallout still
from Hurricane Sandy and its impact on small
businesses. This, too, hurt New Yorks ranking.

"Centers of technological innovation are booming.
Cities like Portland and Jacksonville are taking
advantage of their slower pace, lower costs and
good standard of living offered to residents
While New York City is an appealing location
for entrepreneurs to start a business, the
reality is that high fixed and marginal costs
negatively impact the bottom line of small
business owners According to statistics from
the U.S. Census Bureau, African Americans (just
over 25) Hispanics (28.6) and Asians (12.7)
combine to comprise the majority of New York
Citys population. "San Jose is a hub for small
business, but people might not immediately expect
it to be a booming place for minority-owned
companies"

"San Jose is a hub for small business, but people
might not immediately expect it to be a booming
place for minority-owned companies," According to
U.S. Census Bureau statistics, Hispanics
represent nearly a third of the population in San
Jose, while Asians (non-Hispanic) represent just
over 30 percent of the population.
Surprisingly, Denver scored very well in the
study, largely because of the booming fresh
produce and organic food industry, which is
popular amongst minorities. - Biz2Credit CEO

"Denver scored very well because of its thriving
technology sector, as well as its growing organic
food and tourism industries Baltimore ranked
surprisingly high in the study of women-owned
businesses because the city was not in the top 25
among cities nationally. Many companies in the
Baltimore-Washington corridor have gotten
Woman-Owned Business Certification, which helps
with federal contracts and other
advantages. .Midwestern cities like Milwaukee
are growing in the high-tech and medical
technology industries. High end IT startup
companies are beginning to emerge in this area.
Further, traditional manufacturing hubs are
evolving and supporting IT companies, and many of
them are women-owned.

Baltimore ranks much higher for women-owned
businesses than it does in the overall national
