NerdWallet: Atlanta best place to start a business

(ATLANTA BUSINESS CHRONICLE) -- Atlanta is the best place to start a business, according to NerdWallett Inc., which runs a financial planning website.

NerdWallet said of our Big Peach: "Atlanta earned an A- on Thumbtack's Survey of Small Business Friendliness. The city's population is educated, as 46 percent have a Bachelor's degree, and the cost of living is low, making Hotlanta a top notch city in which to start a business Nearby Georgia Tech supplies plenty of technology talent to the city, and Atlanta is a growing tech hub. The Metro Atlanta Chamber is a great resource for entrepreneurs, offering CEO Roundtables, networking luncheons and monthly workshops. The Small Business Development Center Network at the University of Georgia provides low-cost training and free consulting."

NerdWallet's criteria included the amount of C&I loans under $250,000 given out over a one-year period; the number of businesses per 100 residents and the small business friendliness rating from Thumbtack's Survey of Small Business Owners; per capita income and unemployment rate; population growth and the percentage of residents living with a Bachelor's degree; and cost of living.
