Missouri was recently named the number six state in the U.S. for launching your business, according to FitSmallBusiness.com. The website ranked states in the categories of access to capital, startup activity, taxes, cost of living, labor market, quality of life and cost of starting a business.
Missouri ranked in the top 25 in six out of the seven categories, and performed particularly well in the cost of living category where we placed 11th, according to the study. Creve Coeur, Missouri, ranked as the best city for launching a business in the state, and was described as a hub for technology, life sciences, and bioscience thanks to the presence of Monsanto Company’s world headquarters.
With its strategic location, globally connected infrastructure, stable fiscal atmosphere, competitive business and labor costs, certified work-ready communities, highly-skilled talent, and a statewide commitment to attracting companies and investment, Missouri is a place where companies come to grow and thrive.
