Wyoming A Small Business Nirvana

Laramie, WY – A nationally syndicated columnist is claiming that Wyoming is a nirvana for small businesses. Paul Tulenko recently wrote that entrepreneurs in Wyoming have an advantage that their counterparts in other states don't have: a centralized location for getting funding and aid. Tulenko says the Wyoming Business Council is the umbrella agency that provides all that help. But he says economic development will only happen if Wyoming has some kind of funding for these businesses to get off the ground and perhaps allow them to sell stock so that everyone makes money. Tulenko says that funding will have to come from private individuals who invest in entrepreneurs trying to start their businesses in Wyoming.
