No. 9: North Carolina (No. 2 in 2019)

Number of CRN Solution Provider 500 Companies: 4

COVID-19 Business Impact Rank: 11

North Carolina is another state that has often been high on the annual Best States list. With its normally robust economy the state is No. 11 for entrepreneurship and innovation – the Research Triangle Park area has become of the country’s major technology hubs – and No. 12 for business climate/competitive environment.

North Carolina’s net job loss February to July 2020 was 7.1 percent of the workforce (No. 22) with the unemployment rate standing at 7.6 percent (No. 12) in July. The state’s GDP declined 5.1 percent in the first quarter of 2020 (No. 11).

The Tar Heel State is No. 9 in taxes and regulatory environment with its low (4.63 percent) corporate income tax. But North Carolina could improve on its No. 24 ranking in workforce education and experience.
