Top 10 U.S. cities for young entrepreneurs

If you’re young, energetic, hell-bent on innovation and want to find others like you, where do you move in the United States?

According to the folks at Under30CEO, it’s New York, New York — the city so nice they had to name it twice.

The site recently polled its enterprising readership to discover which cities offered the best resources, schools, events, climate and social scene for a young entrepreneur.

Here’s what they ended up with:

1. New York, N.Y. As the home of several industries, including “Silicon Alley,” it’s got the biggest scene of them all. 2. San Francisco, Calif. Its proximity to Silicon Valley means it’s a hub for the high-tech startup. 3. Austin, Texas. The capital of live music begets a burgeoning corporate culture and a low cost of living. 4. Boston, Mass. Education, education, education. Beantown’s a hub for brains, incubators and deep pockets. 5. Denver, Colo. It’s a growing center for folks who like to work hard (inside), then play hard (outside). 6. Chicago, Ill. It’s a longtime financial center that’s slowly ceding its khaki culture to a more digital community who doesn’t like living out in the ‘burbs. 7. San Diego, Calif. Big tourism and big population allows this sunny clime to take advantage of California’s smartest. 8. Portland, Ore. Major green credentials, a temperate climate and a growing local food scene (plus one hell of a cup of coffee) has Portland on the radar of many young entrepreneurs. 9. Washington, D.C. President Obama may be a Democrat, but his youth has inspired younger folks of all political persuasions to relocate to the nation’s capital in a wave not seen since the 1950s. 10. Seattle, Wash. This hub for technology and industry — from Amazon and Microsoft to Boeing and Starbucks — is also a doorstep to Asia. It doesn’t hurt that it has a highly-educated population, either.

As with any poll, Under30CEO’s survey is only as accurate as its sample — which the site did not reveal. And since the answers are self-submitted, it’s clear that there’s a strong popularity contest thread that runs through the poll. Still, perception counts for a lot, and if these are the places young folks see as promising, these cities are where they’re going — regardless of whether they’re actually the best or not. And in that way, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
