Ten best major US cities to start a business in 2023 ranked and first FOUR come from same state!

Business-friendly is more than just a talking point and after comparing major cities to find out which was the king of commerce, the top spots all had one thing in common.

Nationwide, Americans have implemented voting with their feet as progressive politicians have driven away opportunities while incubating criminality. Exoduses from New York and California have found people seeking out conservative havens and, according to an analysis from WalletHub, Florida boasts four of the top five greener pastures.

The report came after looking at 100 large U.S. cities and comparing their business environment, access to resources, and business costs broken down into 19 key metrics. Earning the highest total score was Orlando, Florida with 65.34.

Along with boasting the second spot for an overall business environment, Orlando came in third for average growth in the number of small businesses.

They were followed for the best city to start a business by Jacksonville at 62.25, Miami (taking best for business environment) at 60.78, and Tampa with a score of 60.37.

Rounding out the top ten were Durham, North Carolina; Boise, Idaho; Atlanta, Georgia; Charlotte, North Carolina; Fort Worth, Texas; and Austin, Texas.

The honor of worst on the list of 100 cities went to Washington, D.C. with a score of 34.50 with Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; New York, New York; Jersey City, New Jersey; and Fremont, California joining the nation’s capital at the bottom.

Of course, large cities weren’t the only places in Florida that won in business opportunities as WalletHub also looked at smaller cities and, when comparing 1,300 of them, found that South Bradenton and Fort Meyers, Florida were among the top ten at 6 and 8 respectively. Four of the top five slots for small cities went to Utah with Washington, Utah taking the crown.

As Florida recently wrapped up another successful legislative session checking off wins for Gov. Ron DeSantis and the conservative movement, the contrast couldn’t be clearer between what benefits regular Americans and what plays well for globalist corporations.

Previously, it had been reported how big businesses were leveraging their power against conservatives and conservative causes, especially through the implementation of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) scores.

“Numerous large banks are using their financial might to effectively force business customers into adopting climate change policies, even when it will require that those customers dramatically change their business practices,” wrote Justin Haskins, director of the Socialism Research Center at The Heartland Institute.”

To begin counteracting those policies, DeSantis recently signed a bill to ban state officials from investing public money into ESG funds. As he said in a statement, “In Florida and across the nation, we’ve heard from law-abiding small business owners and consumers who’ve been denied access to financial services because of where they work or what they believe in.”

“Through this legislation, Florida will continue to lead the nation against big banks and corporate activists who’ve colluded to inject woke ideology into the global marketplaces, regardless of the financial interests of beneficiaries,” he went on.
