Are Bozeman and other small Montana cities good launchpads for starting a new business?

Using 15 key metrics, WalletHub has ranked Holland, Michigan as its 2016 Best Small City to start a new business. The list includes U.S. cities with populations ranging from 25,000 to 100,000 residents.

“City size matters when choosing a launching pad for a startup. And as many veteran entrepreneurs — and failed startups — understand well, bigger is not always better. Depending on an entrepreneur’s type of business and personal preferences, a city with a smaller population can be a better option.”
