Another survey out today ranks U.S. cities on their small business atmosphere. VA only barely edges into the top 20 (as part of the DC metro area), and our next highest ranking is Richmond at #31. Our neighbors to the south, however, top the survey at #1 (Charlotte, NC) and #2 (Raleigh, NC). It’s time to look at why we’re losing ground. Business taxes, healthcare costs, ability to attract angel investors… these are just a few of the broader issues that we see affecting all small businesses in the state. It’s time to take action in Richmond to get back our competitive edge! Who’s with us?
