You’re never too young to set out on your quest for entrepreneurial glory—especially if you live in one of these cities!

Cities like Oklahoma City, which is especially loaded with benefits for millennials like being among the top cities where millennials are most likely to make more money, being one of the best cities for millennial homeownership, and being one of the overall best metros for millennials.

“Oklahoma is the last city that can boast an average founder age under 38 years old, and it’s also the city among the top 10 with the largest share of millennial founders, at 43.7%.
