  6. WHY AUSTIN for HIGH TECH? From Forbes Magazine: With the 52,000-student University of Texas in Austin, "you've got a wealth of educated, very talented workers across the board," says Suh, LegalZoom's chief executive. The company also got a "fantastic deal" on subleased office space north of downtown, as well as up to $2 million in incentives from state and local governments. "I have not seen a city and state government work that quickly and efficiently anywhere," Suh says. Now LegalZoom is preparing to expand. "We expect the next 500 people at LegalZoom to be in Austin," he says. From the Chamber of Commerce: Austin is the U.S. metro most conducive to the creation and development of small business according to a new ranking, based on the 100 largest metros, produced by the Austin Business Journal’s parent company, bizjournals. Austin was No. 4 in the same ranking last year, and last year’s No. 1 was Raleigh. This is the fifth time bizjournals has produced this ranking.  From The charts and articles in this special report show how each state fares on the factors most essential for a business-friendly environment—as well as what states are doing to attract and retain companies in the increasingly competitive battle to win site selection.

  7. WHY AUSTIN for HIGH TECH? "Austin frequently appears on “best of” lists. RelocateAmerica’s “Top 10 Overall” Money Magazine’s “Best Big City”, MSN’s “Greenest City in America” just to name a few. There are plenty of Austin Apartments in the city so being a part of the best is not a challenge. Austin is quite simply a melting pot of sights and sounds that can’t be found anywhere else. From the quirky cast of characters that populate Congress Avenue to burnt orange-clad University of Texas students, bats to Longhorns, four-star restaurants to down-home barbecue joints, corporate CEOs to struggling musicians, Texas’ capital city stands apart from the rest. Austin became a tech center, home to many large employers, in the 1990s. Today it maintains these identities and also fosters an increased prominence in the film industry. It’s hip and trendy, yet in a vintage sort of way. It’s high-tech and laid-back. It’s politically charged and culturally rich. It’s eclectic by nature and creative by design. Most of all, it’s a place where people like to have a good time. The city is the cultural and economic center of the Austin-Round Rock metropolitan area with a population of more than 1.7 million residents. Its diverse neighborhoods include urban lofts and large country estates; starter homes and affordable apartments, making Austin truly a community for everyone.“ PLUS....NO STATE INCOME TAX!
