A study conducted by lists Billings, MT as the #1 city among small metro areas to start a new business. Here is an excerpt from the article:

“The biggest city in Montana, Billings is still a small town in size and spirit. It’s the largest urban area between Fargo, N.D., and Spokane, and it serves as the regional hub for more than half a million people. But with a population of a little more than 100,000 (150,000, if you count the suburbs), Billings remains the sort of place where the average commute time is a mere 16 minutes and business proprietors are on a first-name basis with their UPS delivery guy.”
