Texas State Business Resources

Why Texas? This is one of the questions that entrepreneurs face when deciding whether the state is a suitable destination for a new business. As it turns out, there are plenty of reasons why the state is an excellent choice for new or expanding businesses.

As the old saying goes, "everything is bigger in Texas". This is also true when it comes to the opportunities available within the state. It starts with the abundance of talent in the workforce and labor market. The human component of any business is the most crucial formula for success. Luckily for businesses, there is no shortage of talented and skilled labor available given that the state is filled with options.

In addition to a strong workforce is a horde of tax benefits of businesses. Texas is following the lead of states Nevada and Delaware in passing more state laws that offer tax incentives to businesses. It is called a business-friendly state because it does not require corporate or income tax.

Texas is also a state that is open to innovation. Therefore, there are lots of opportunities for any industry to flourish - from advanced tech, manufacturing, aerospace, biotechnology, energy, petroleum, and more. Whether you are a small or medium sized business, Texas paves the way for growth and expansion. For business insurance related info please refer to our more in depth article.

Texas, also known as "The Lone Star State", is the second-biggest state (second only to Alaska) in the United States. It is located in the South Central region of the country. It earned its nickname for being an independent republic (or sovereign state) which reminds the state's struggle for independence from Mexico. The lone star can be found in the state's flag.

Its capital city of Austin is considered as one of the finest state legislatures in the country. Its most populous and largest city - Houston - is also the fourth largest city in the US. It is the home of the Space Center Houston and one of the most popular attractions in the state.

San Antonio, on the other hand, is the second most populated city in the state, and the seventh biggest city in the country. At the heart of the city is the San Antonio River, which offers plenty of attractions, from bars, cafes, and restaurants.

The state's economy remained heavily dependent on oil and gas, followed by banking and insurance, retailing, wholesaling, and construction.
