Come 2007 I can technically move anywhere, as I have no physical ties to Austin, TX.
I had no plans to move, but I wanted to see what my potential city candidates were before I completely knocked the idea.
Asking some mentors, I was advised that any city I lived in would be most beneficial to me if it has the following things:
-Strong educational resources in the university environment.
-Strong relationship between science and business.
-A strong and established business incubator.
-High tech companies all around.
There are areas in the United States that fit these criteria:
-Silicon Valley in California (San Francisco & surrounding area)
-Route 128 in Massachusetts (Boston, MA.)
There is simply more opportunity in these three places for a startup company than anywhere else in the United States.
