Silicon Valley may be home to some of the most famous U.S. entrepreneurs – but it’s not one of the best cities to start a business, according to WalletHub.

WalletHub looked at 14 metrics, from financing access to corporate tax rates, to determine which cities were most hospitable for entrepreneurs.

Here’s a look at the top five:

    WalletHub says Jacksonville has the second-highest small business survival rate over a 5-year period, in addition to low corporate tax rates and a strong workforce.

  • 2Fayetteville, NC

    According to WalletHub, Fayetteville has a great variety of industries and an inexpensive and diligent labor pool.

  • 3Augusta, GA

    Augusta is great for new businesses, says WalletHub, because it has low corporate taxes, affordable real estate and low average incomes.

  • 4Jackson, MS

    Reuters

    WalletHub reports that Jackson has abundant labor, inexpensive office space and low corporate taxes.

  • 5Memphis, TN

    WalletHub says Memphis is primed to become a startup hotspot, thanks to its deep employee pool and low cost of living.
