Austin Texas Among Smartest Cities in the US

Austin is a smart place to start a business

Well, I knew that Austin was a super cool place to live but I had no idea that we were super SMART too!

I was blown away and also pleasantly surprised to read a recent article by CNN Money that Austin is listed as one of the top 10 Smartest Cities in America….wow!

Being in the commercial real estate industry, I’m continuously counseling my clients on reasons why Austin is the perfect place to start a new business or expand their current business. This article was the perfect bit of information to give to new and existing clients that are looking for office space in Austin.

The article actually features the smartest and the well….let’s just say, the not quite as smart, cities in the U.S.

Austin ranks #6 in the top 10 with almost 38% of the population holding college degrees.

This percentage makes for good business.

Whether you’re looking to hire smart, intelligent people, or want to be in a city where there is a plethora of entrepreneurialism, Austin is the place!

Other reasons I love Austin….

  • Greatest place on the planet for live music
  • Awesome fitness scene with jogging at Lady Bird Lake or entering a local triathlon
  • Home to some of the best Mexican food your mouth has ever tasted

So go ahead…start a new adventure in Austin—we’re fun & SMART!
