An ongoing travesty has finally been rectified. 17 years overdue, Denver’s claimed the lofty throne atop Forbes annual list of best places for business and careers. 199 lesser-known municipalities were also noted and ranked, all of which share one common trait – they’re not Denver. They’re places like Atlanta, Seattle and Des Moines and frankly, they’re not number one.
Quote the good folks at Forbes: “The Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metro area, home to 2.8 million people, is attractive for its diverse economy, highly educated labor force and outdoor recreational opportunities. Companies are increasingly choosing Denver as the site for new operations or to relocate.”
Hats off to you, Forbes, for recognizing what those of us who live, work and study here have known for decades – Denver’s an exceptionally pleasing locale. From our high employment growth, to 300-plus days of sunshine, world-class Universities, and a burgeoning arts and cultural scene, there’s truly something here for everyone.
It’s why we at Regis are proud of the notoriety, even if we’ve played second fiddle to other cities in the past. The important part is that they got it right this time around. We’re sure the 18th edition of the list will be a no-brainer now that the top spot has been properly sorted out.
Want to take in all that the best city for business and careers has to offer? Schedule a visit at Regis, we’d be happy to show you around.
