Survey findings and summary
Thumbtack.com, in partnership with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, has released the new results from the second annual Thumbtack.com Small Business Survey. The 2013 study draws upon data from over 7,000 small business owners nationwide and shows that small businesses rated Minnesota highly for the ease of starting a business in the state.
Some of the key findings for Minnesota include:
- Minnesota received an 'A-' grade for its overall small business friendliness, up from a 'B' last year.
- The state also was rated highly for the ease of starting a business, earning an 'A-' grade. Additionally, two-thirds of the small business owners surveyed felt they were paying about the right share of taxes.
