Move over Silicon Valley. Some other heavyweights are getting noticed for growing new companies and startups.
Buffalo made Inc.'s list of "3 Unexpected Places that are Actually Amazing for Startups."
The monthly publication, which focuses on growing companies, notes that big cities are not always the best choice for every firm. That's where smaller cities like Buffalo, Milwaukee and Salt Lake City come in. The cities were cited in a recent story for allowing companies to grow at a stable rate, while offering talent, funding and affordable prices.
That's just what 43North and the Innovation Center on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus have sought to do in bolstering startup companies over the past several years.
Inc.com cited Buffalo as a satellite for New York City, Toronto and Chicago, and appealing for "serial entrepreneurs" looking to form their teams in more reasonably priced cities without sacrificing their ability to easily meet in person.
The story also noted that reasonable apartment rents could make the Queen City a "great place to call home."
