America is founded on choice, including the choice of where to live, innovate and prosper. Entrepreneurs and business owners in the U.S. have a choice when they decide to start new businesses ventures – 51 of them, really.

The license to innovate, the flexibility to hire qualified workers in science and engineering, and freedom from burdensome taxes and regulatory structures are key factors for entrepreneurs and business owners deciding where to establish roots. But what makes a state a champion of business innovation?
