Raleigh attractive to entrepreneurs

Posted on January 10, 2014 

If you’re an entrepreneur, Raleigh is the place to be.

Business Review USA, a digital magazine that focuses on business and industry news, has ranked Raleigh as the No. 3 place in the country for a business to succeed in 2014.

The magazine cites Raleigh’s “highly educated workforce and high quality family life” as examples of what make the city attractive to entrepreneurs. It also factors in Research Triangle Park and graduates from Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and N.C. State University.

Des Moines, Iowa and Austin, Texas are Nos. 1 and 2 respectively on the list, followed by Raleigh, San Francisco and Pittsburgh.
