AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Today, JobSage released a list of the best cities in the United States for minority business owners.
Approximately 18.7% of all businesses in the United States are minority-owned, despite ethnic and racial minorities making up over 40% of the population. For entrepreneurs of color who face systemic barriers like a lack of funding and a disproportionate impact during times of economic crisis, choosing the right location to start a business is important.
Using data from the United State Census Bureau’s Annual Business Survey, JobSage determined ten cities that stand out as places where minority-owned startups thrive.
- St. Louis, Missouri
- Fresno, California
- San Antonio, Texas
- Orlando, Florida
- Baltimore, Maryland
- San Jose, California
- Washington, D.C.
- Seattle, Washington
- Houston, Texas
- Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas
These ten metros were among the highest ranked in areas such as percentage of startups that are minority-owned, total number of minority-owned startups, annual sales at minority-owned startups, and more. JobSage also considered support available to business owners of color in each city including local chambers of commerce, funding opportunities, and startup accelerators.
