See Why Seattle is One of the 10 Best Cities to Start Your Own Business

Seattle may best be known as the birthplace of great coffee and as a city with exceptional amounts of rain. But, did you know that Seattle is also one of the 10 best cities for starting your own business?

Kiplinger took a look at cities across the U.S., ranking them by concentration of small businesses, track records of successful start-ups, number of patents issued and cost of living for entrepreneurs. Seattle stacks up well, with a metro population just under 3.5 Million the city is home to over 70,000 small businesses! Also in the city’s favor – living and business costs run 20% to 30% cheaper than other West Coast hubs, such as San Jose.

For Seattle residents thinking about starting their own business they can rest easier knowing they live in an entrepreneurial-friendly place. However, regardless of where you live or what type of business you want to start, going out on your own can be risky.
