Forbes recently released its inaugural list of rising startup cities in the U.S., and St. Louis, Missouri, ranked number two. The rankings highlight the cities low cost of doing business, and growth in venture capital as reasons for its placement on the list.
Forbes developed the list in partnership with Washington, D.C.-based venture capital firm Revolution. The list, which excludes the 10 cities with the most startup funding in the past three years, used 13 metrics that include categories such as cost, education, population growth and venture capital investment.
