Las Vegas quite deservedly enjoys its reputation as the entertainment capital of the world but that is not all there is to it. Founded in 1905, the city benefited from the legalization of casino gambling in Nevada in 1931; not surprisingly, tourism, gambling and conventions are the primary drivers of the city’s economy. However, recently Las Vegas has become a real startup centre, aiming to rival the business hubs of California.
The population of the Las Vegas metropolitan area is just over 2 million people, which makes it the 29th most populous city in the nation. It is particularly popular for families and retirees, partly owing to its sunny and warm climate.
Gambling regulation make Las Vegas a natural leader in the hospitality industry as well as a major tourism and entertainment center. The city boasts more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any other city in the world. Most of these hotels and mega casinos are located on the Las Vegas Strip, though it is technically outside of city limits. In 2014 alone the area’s gaming revenue was $9.6 billion. The economy of the city, and the entire state of Nevada, is tourism-driven, which has its advantages and disadvantages, but there are indications that it is becoming more diversified and less dependent on tourism and conventions.
In 2013 Zappos founder and CEO Tony Hsieh committed $350 million to developing and revitalizing downtown Las Vegas. The investment was allocated as follows: $100 million in real estate, $100 million in residential development, $50 million in small businesses, $50 million in education and $50 million in tech startups. This is not the only recent major development in the city: in December 2015 Faraday Futures announced the project of $1 billion, 300 square foot automobile factory in North Las Vegas.
Nevada is ranked the # 2 state in the US that encourages small business, after South Dakota. (Incidentally, California took the 49th spot.) There are numerous reasons why Las Vegas is attractive for small business: the state tax code is very business-friendly (there are no corporate or personal income taxes and no estate tax) , commercial real estate is relatively inexpensive (unless you plan to found your business on the Strip, which is a different story). The cost of living, again, is relatively low, and the state offers numerous incentives for small business, particularly in the non-gaming industries. The Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development Center (GOED) was created in 2011 for the purpose of stimulating business expansion; it offers various incentives to small business, including tax abatement, employee-training grants, assistance with the cost of intellectual property development and more. A recent partnership of Nevada Small Business Development Center and LVEGA (The Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance) will offer free counseling and workshops, and make low-cost training more accessible to Las Vegas entrepreneurs.
Recession hit Las Vegas hard (it made the top 10 of recession ravaged cities in the US). The unemployment rate is the highest in Nevada, which itself has the highest unemployment rate in the country. However, things are looking up: in the last quarter of 2015 small businesses of Nevada reported a record half million workers (596, 000 to be exact), that exceeds the pre-recession numbers.
Winston Ibrahim, Co-Founder & Chairman at Hydros Bottle, says: “Las Vegas is the ideal spot for any young entrepreneur. The sheer energy and passion involved in the process of transforming the entire area cannot help but be invigorating.” But it is not only the young who flock to Vegas. The city is one of the top places for “worktirement” (people who continue working in their 60s and beyond) in the US.
In September 2014 the city became one the few cities to acquire own domain name (.vegas) and four month later, the first city in the United States to make it available to anyone in the world. Las Vegas is one of the top 10 fastest-growing metropolitan area in the country, and its startup scene will also continue to grow. There are new and promising startups in such spheres as education and learning, health, social media, marketing and content, sports, media and production, not to mention the ubiquitous commerce.
These are just some reasons to start a business in Las Vegas, not so much a City of Sin, as a City of Opportunity.
