That’s right, another #1 Ranking! Provo has been ranked #1 for the fastest-growing on-the-rise startup hub! SpareFoot went fishing to find out which of these “far-flung places” are rocking the boat and wound up netting a list of America’s Six Fastest-Growing On-the-Rise Startup Hubs.
To be considered for their list, a metro area had to:
- Have a population of less than 1 million as of July 31, 2013.
- Be among the top 20 metro areas for venture capital activity per 100,000 residents in 2012, as ranked by the Martin Prosperity Institute.
- Post one-year population growth of at least 1 percent from 2012 to 2013, as estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau.
