Inc.com has presented a list of what it considers the best places in the country to start a business. Austin, Texas tops the list, with Richmond, Virginia at 35 and Virginia Beach coming in at number 49.

Inc.com looked at seven metrics to compile the list: rate of entrepreneurship, high-growth company density, population growth, net business creation, wage growth, job creation, and early-stage funding deals.

About Virginia Beach, the writers say:

Maritime logistics and tourism are big as well, but business leaders are eager to diversify the economy. 757 Angels is a major player in the percolating startup ecosystem, investing in firms like Embody (cutting-edge treatment provider for tendon and ligament injuries) and Psionic (creator of lidar technology for autonomous vehicles). Reaktor Business Technology Innovation Center, which recently raised nearly $10 million, is busy nurturing aerospace startups. And colleges are doing their part: Old Dominion started an entrepreneurship program two years ago, and an incubator is coming soon to Norfolk State.

Sure, Ocean View Beach is actually on the bay and not the oceanfront, but it’s still a great beach, and you should be able to stand on your roof and see the ocean under the the bridge from there.
