CNBC named Michigan on their list of America’s Top States for Business in 2023. To develop the list, CNBC measures states on more than 86 different metrics and ten categories of competitiveness.

Michigan’s rankings include:

    • 6th for cost of doing business, up from 9th last year.
    • 7th for cost of living, up from 12th last year.
    • 12th for technology and innovation, up from 15th last year.
    • 15th for business friendliness, up from 20th last year.

“As Team Michigan, we are proud that our efforts to grow the state’s thriving economy have been recognized with a Top 10 ranking in CNBC’s Top States for Business list,” said MEDC CEO Quentin L. Messer, Jr. “While encouraged, we know that our work continues. To position Michigan in the top spot, we remain resolutely committed to working alongside Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Legislature, as well as our regional and industry partners, to build on our momentum over the last two years and ensure all Michiganders across our two peninsulas know that they can Make it in Michigan.”
