Move over Silicon Valley, there’s a new player in town when it comes to tech industry growth! That’s right, Huntsville, Alabama is now one of the fastest-growing cities in America, and Horizon Companies is on the ground floor. Here’s why we think Huntsville is poised to take over as the Top Dog in tech:
-The cost of living is incredibly low compared to other major tech hubs. This makes it an attractive option for newcomers to the industry who may not be able to afford the high cost of living in a place like San Francisco.
-The city has a highly educated workforce thanks to the presence of several universities and colleges. This means that there is a large pool of qualified workers to choose from when businesses are looking to expand or relocate here.
-Huntsville is home to the Marshall Space Flight Center, which is one of NASA’s most important research facilities. This gives the city a major leg up when it comes to attracting aerospace and defense industry businesses.
-There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation thanks to the city’s proximity to both mountains and beaches. This makes it a great place to live for people who want to take advantage of all that mother nature has to offer.
Horizon Companies is proud to be a part of this rapidly growing city, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds!
