City of Jacksonville

If you’re a regular reader of my blog you know that I’ll be setting up my business somewhere in the next month or two. In my last blog entry I mentioned that Raleigh, NC may very well be the current front runner. I’ve done a lot of research on where to do it to have the best chance of success and also live somewhere I want to live. I’ve had quite a few emails asking about what cities are on my shortlist. Here they are in no particular order:

  1. Raleigh, NC
  2. Charlotte, NC
  3. Atlanta, GA
  4. Austin, TX
  5. Jacksonville, FL
  6. Tampa, FL
  7. Irvine, CA (probably ruled out now)

I have some very specific criteria I am looking for when I chose these cities? Can you guess what they are?
