ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) - Two cities near St. Louis have made the list for 2016’s best small cities to start a business, according to personal finance website WalletHub.

The report named Chesterfield and Maryland Heights, Missouri as numbers 17 and 19 consecutively on the list of these small, yet great cities for business.

Analysts compared 1,268 small-sized cites in categories such as “average growth in number of small businesses” and “prevalence of investors” to “office-space affordability” and “corporate taxes.” The analysis lists the city’s business environment rank, access to resources rank and business cost rank.

This list comes just weeks before National Small Business Week's list recognizes the United States’ top entrepreneurs each year.

Other Missouri cities that made the list include Jefferson City and St. Peters at numbers four and 34 consecutively.
