Overall, Nevada is also a great state for starting a small business. We found that the Nevada Small Business Development Center has many great resources, including sample business plans and published resources for getting preliminary paperwork drawn up. We did find that Nevada makes it difficult, in terms of healthy and safety regulations, to get a small business up and running. Restaurants often spend considerable time going through health inspections and licensure to open their doors and keep them open. Nevada does, however, make it very easy to hire skilled labor, as the two largest cities in the state have major state universities to hire skilled professionals.
