If you’re looking to start a business, Atlanta’s got your back. Business.org, a site dedicated to small business growth, has announced its Best Cities for Entrepreneurs and Startups in 2018, and Atlanta is ranked No. 14. The rankings are based on analyses of more than 300 North American cities for startup friendliness, financial environments and demographics. Specifically, business.org looked at the 25- to 34-year-old population and their ratio of higher education degrees. The jobless rate, affordable housing and growth of startups also factored into the rankings. The only other southeastern city to make the top 30 is Nashville, which came in at No. 6.
