Biggest Little Silicon Valley

Last week the Reno Gazette-Journal ran an opinion piece on Reno’s expanding technology economy. See the RGJ piece here: Reno: Silicon Valley without the sky-high rent

In the piece the writer points out Reno’s:

  • nationally-ranked university
  • technical schools and community colleges
  • varied work force
  • low cost of doing business
  • attractive commercial real estate prices
  • competitive tax climate
  • high quality of life
  • favorable location

…as a few of it’s attributes that are attracting technology companies

From the piece:

The allure of Reno is its promise and potential to become a vibrant technology city without all of the downsides of a tech capital like Silicon Valley. If we can attract Tesla, Switch, Microsoft and Apple, but keep at bay the sky-high commercial real estate prices, snarled traffic and exorbitant housing prices, Reno will remain a magnet to maturing technology and logistics companies.
