You are a minority business owner and a budding entrepreneur. What city will understand your struggle, support your growth, feed opportunity for capital and serve up the least barriers to success? According to a recent article from HubSpot, there are seven cities where minorities have the best chances to thrive. Are they what you expected?
- Houston, Texas
- San Antonio, Texas
- Atlanta, Georgia
- Charlotte, North Carolina
- Washington D.C.
- Memphis, Tennessee
- Fresno, California
We love to see Houston and San Antonio listed.
According to JobSage, San Antonio businesses made over $1 billion in annual sales from minority-owned startups. Future projections show increases in the number of Black and Hispanic families residing there. Houston is notable for its racial diversity, one of the best in the nation. As such, minorities make up 30.45% of the 5,600 startups in Houston’s metro region, according to JobSage.
Charlotte is intriguing as a mecca for minority business owners because its cost of living is 4% below the national average. You can fail but, hopefully, succeed in that economic environment. Fresno surprised us with over $650 million in annual sales for 754 minority-owned businesses.
Geography is one of many variables that minority business owners should consider when starting a business. Start investing in marketing and advertising for long-term brand health and operational sustainability.
