Congratulations Charlotte! ~ #8 on "The 100 Best Places to Live and Launch 2008"

Congratulations Charlotte!!

Fortune Small Business Magazine reports that Charlotte ranks #8 on their list of "The 100 Best Places to Live and Launch 2008".  Fortune's goal was to find towns with the best mix of business advantages and lifestyle appeal. Regional organizations such as the local Small Business and Technology Center, the Inventors Network, and the Central Piedmont Community College's Center for Entrepreneurship supply a mix of mentoring, networking, and technical assistance to innovative entrepreneurs; especially those in the finance and technology fields. A research complex sponsored in part by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte is set to open its labs this year to scientists and startups involved in healthcare and nutrition research will help develop the Charlotte's biotech industry.

Charlotte is full of entertainment, including the Carolina Panthers football, Charlotte Bobcats Basketball, Knights Baseball, Checkers Hockey, and NASCAR. Also, including premier golf courses, performing arts center, theaters, white-water rafting, fishing, sailing, waterskiing, and the list goes on and on.

Along with this Charlotte has been able to retain many of the graduates out of the nearby colleges and universities which serve as a testament to Charlotte's vibrancy and employment opportunities that attract young professionals from around the state.
