A recent report points to Nashville being a very attractive location for startups.

These categories are: early stage fundraising deals, high-growth company density, job creation, net business creation, population growth, rate of entrepreneurship and wage growth.

Using these scores, the report ranked the metro areas for their startup friendliness. Nashville did very well in the report, coming in at No. 4 overall. The only metro areas that ranked above it were Austin, Salt Lake City and Raleigh.

Among the categories that Nashville had particularly strong ranks in were:

  • Net business creation, with a rank of No. 3
  • Job creation, with a rank of No. 4
  • Rate of entrepreneurship, with a rank of No. 6
