The picture has nothing to do with the post - I just liked it. Photo credit here.
Chris Pund talks about his reasons why small towns and cities are great for starting a business. Chris isn't new to the small business scene - he's a serial entrepreneur, and received high praise from Stuart Mease for his role in Radford's student-run entrepreneurship seminar.
I think Chris is on track here. Items #2, 6 and 9 in particular are truly benefits to living and working in a small town; there seems to be more flexibility and a spirit of collaboration among many of these smaller firms. If you're thinking about starting a business in the New River Valley, let's talk about how to get you started - I'd bet there might be some folks at VT Knowledgeworks that might be interested in helping, as well.
H/t to Stuart Mease for this ...
