Austin has been one of the popular cities not only for those who want to buy real estate here but also for those who want to set up their small businesses. As per the survey done by Thumbtack.com, Austin gets A grade for small business friendliness. The survey has covered more than 6000 different small businesses across the country and they have come across various cities that provide better opportunities and options to small business owners. The survey clearly indicates that Austin provides better opportunities, hiring and training programs and even better workforce to the employers that can boost their small business in the future.
The survey indicates that Austin gets A grade for the kind of friendly environment that attracts more small business owners and entrepreneurs. The city also receives better points for ease of starting the business here. This means that the regulations and all the other documentation that is required to open a business is far easier here than in any other city. On the other hand, the city also does well in terms of health and safety regulations and tax code and even labor problems. However, Austin does not do well when it comes to hiring costs because the labor is bit expensive and the networking programs here are bit complicated as well.
