"In business -- as in real estate -- it’s all about location, location, location. Despite the rise in remote-work arrangements, this sentiment holds true even if you don’t have a physical store. Where you put your headquarters can affect your ability to hire, as well as determine the business partners and investors you have easy access to.

"Looking to launch your next venture in a business-friendly climate? If you’re lucky enough to live near one of the following communities, you’re in luck. If not, consider whether a move will give your business the best odds possible of succeeding."

Listed here are Patel's top 10, with Oklahoma City heading the list. "

Combine a strong small-business-lending environment and a lower cost of living, and you have a surprising startup haven," Patel wrote about Oklahoma City.
