A national small business survey has found that New Hampshire is one of the best states in the country for small businesses.
Thumbtack.com and the Kauffman Foundation have recently released a report ranking New Hampshire among the top 10 friendliest states towards small business, giving the states high marks for ease in starting a business and for having an overall business friendly atmosphere.
"New Hampshire continues to be one of the best business-friendly states in the nation and it is because we have an economic strategy in place that is working," Governor John Lynch said. "It is a strategy based on having a highly educated workforce, a state government that is responsive to the needs of businesses and an overall low-tax environment. Given our recognition as one of the most business friendly states in nation, it is important that we continue to build on our successful economic strategy, and not make radical changes to it or abandon it."
According to the report, "New Hampshire excels when compared against other states in New England - the state ranks first among New England states for overall small business friendliness, ease of starting a small business, and friendliest regulations."
