Want to hit it big in high-tech? Where you set up shop may be a major factor in how high your company soars because, increasingly, tech businesses are found not in isolation, but in clusters--witness Silicon Valley where, it seems, every business is tech-related.

But that doesn't mean Silicon Valley is the nation's only tech hotbed--or even the best spawning ground for start-ups. To find out exactly where tech newcomers are thriving, Business Start-Ups asked the economic analysts at Dun & Bradstreet to crunch the numbers and rank the nation's 139 metro areas from best to worst for fledging tech businesses. Read on for the rankings--and for a surprise: Silicon Valley can't claim the top spot.

Robert McGarvey has covered the tech industry for more than 15 years.
