Dallas, 155 companies

While recent grads flock to Silicon Valley, Dallas is home to many start-ups led by mid-career founders. While these start-ups span different industries, according to the Greater Dallas Chamber of Commerce, the area is home to about 43% of the state’s high-tech workers, including fast-growing company Bottle Rocket Apps. Texas also has low taxes and helps shield companies from lawsuits through a tort reform law.
