Cincinnati named a top U.S. city of the future
Apr 14, 2017, 10:58am EDT
Erin Caproni Digital Producer Cincinnati Business Courier



Cincinnati has been named one of the top 10 American cities of the future by fDi Magazine.

The Queen City was named No. 6 overall in large cities in the American Cities of the Future edition of the magazine along with No. 9 in large cities for economic potential, No. 8 in large cities for business friendliness and No. 4 in large cities for foreign direct investment strategy.

There seems to be a lot of tech start up companies in CIN. Obviously that's happening in most cities but Cincinnati seems to have a pretty big (and rapidly growing) tech scene receiving a lot of investment, from what I see on LinkedIn.

This is true. Especially in OTR. I sell companies their servers, software (licenses), hardware and cloud services (AWS & Azure). I travel sometimes to Austin and we're getting noticed on their radars as well.

Right! Any word on why OTR in particular? I'm curious.

Really?! No way. You work for Azure? I get calls from Azure all the time because I've used them to deploy web apps. They used to hound me all the time. I'd get so disappointed, getting calls from Microsoft, thinking it as a recruiter interested in me (I sent my resume all over the place) but it's just them trying to get me to upgrade the service. They were pretty relentless when I first signed up. That's awesome. Sounds like you have a really cool job and you're in the right place for it.

Azure is Microsoft's answer to Amazon (AWS) and cloud infrastructure management.

I think it's a combination of a few things ...

1. There's momentum. A couple of tech startups became successful and people in their network saw that it could be done.

2. Crossroads has an extremely aggressive incubator/mentoring/entrepreneur program called Oceann. At one of their latest events, they had Daymond John speak, from Shark Tank. http://oceanaccelerator.com/

3. It seems like everyone's working as one large network to accomplish a single goal and that is to put Cincy on the map and promote their ideas.

4. A lot of the upper management from some of the local startups came from large corporations, i.e. P&G, is a great example. So they have the know-how in being a successful leader. Side note, many of Crossroads leadership staff came from large organizations, including Chuck Mingo the 2nd in command to Brian Tome.

5. Just great ideas, right ... Take Lisnr for instance ... this technology has the ability to really change things on a global scale. I'm in my mid 30's now and having spent 15+ years in wireless I remember when people were like "what's Bluetooth?" ... Now we're shocked if a device doesn't have Bluetooth.

That sounds about right except Cleveland should have made the cut somewhere in the mid teens to early 20s

Dayton named on ĎAmericaís best towns everí list

Daytonís bike trails, waterways, food scene prompt addition to Outside Magazineís 2017 ďAmericaís best towns ever.Ē

As corporate headquarters fled Dayton and manufacturing jobs evaporated during the fallout of the Great Recession, the Gem City was down on its luck.
The city has since regained its footing. Outside Magazine has acknowledged Daytonís rebound, naming it one of Americaís most fit, fun and adventure-ready towns.

Why Dayton is cool.

The mission of this site is to tell the story of hundreds of people who worked at the United States Naval Computing Machine Laboratory, a top secret project in Dayton during World War Two. These people kept their secret for over fifty years.

List below:
https://smartasset.com/mortgage/the-best-cities-for-new-college-grads-in-2017



For the most part, I guess this list makes sense and I wouldn't call it a "Dumb @ss list" necessarily. Columbus and Cincinnati seem to have a lot of Fortune 500-1000 or growing companies who seem to need workers so badly that they're actually willing to take on entry-level recent graduates and take the time to train and develop them even though they run the risk of the majority of new workers leaving after 6 months or a year. I think that's what makes a city's business climate the most friendly to recent college grads. Cleveland certainly has that with AmTrust (they've been acquiring other companies left and right) but that seems to be the extent of it in the Cleveland area, from my knowledge.

Is Nashville really that great for college graduates? Looking at their metrics, I see they consider 'entertainment options' to be a factor but Nashville is known as the epicenter of Country Music culture; I wouldn't exactly consider that an entertainment option for people like myself who don't really care for country music unless it's Johnny Cash or someone extraordinary like that. For most people, country music isn't exactly an 'entertainment option.' There's a very limited market. I don't know much about Nashville but  seeing them ranked at number 3 is weird to me, unless country music culture holds as much weight as much more important factors, when so many people in America don't even care for country music.

Cincinnati scored very low for jobs. It's ranking is based almost entirely on its affordability. I think the fact that the rankings are only based on 3 criteria, one of which is "fun", fully qualifies this list as dumb.

Right. 'Fun' is subjective and it's not something that only recent college grads look for.

One of the best ways to regularly appear on lists of fastest-growing cities is to, you know, actually have population growth. So how did Cleveland get on this list??

Because the metric was number of households moving. Which means absolutely nothing when relating to population growth, decline, etc.

Sounded like anyone moving into the market, out of the market, within the market, etc. It wasn't a very good metric for anything other than the number of households moving location which doesn't say much about population.

50 Worst Cities to live in.

Cincinnati at #25. Youngstown and Canton are #21 and #20.

Surprisingly no Cleveland here. I only base this surprise on the fact Detroit is #1 and usually they're sister cities on these types of lists when one is ranked so high.

That's a 'Dumb@ss list' if I've ever seen one.

It's like they just make this sh!t up and assume that by putting Detroit as the worst, we'll assume it's legit.

Hung out in Canton a bit tonight. There were a couple big events going on in the main drag. Something like music thursdays in their main park downtown.  I attended a beerfest at their civic center. Only thing i didn't like is Canton brewing closes at like 9pm at night.
The new stadium at the NFL hof is looking impressive. The one side is mainly completed. Definitely not a city that should be thrown on a worst list.

Indian Hill ranks No. 3 most affluent among nearly 15,000 U.S. cities



The attached graphics show the leaders in Greater Cincinnati in the 12 affluence categories, with their overall national affluence ranks in parentheses. It's worth noting that Indian Hill ranks No. 3 nationally out of nearly 15,000 communities.

The 2017 affluence ratings are based on ACBJís 12-part formula, which used statistics from the five-year version of the Census Bureauís 2015 American Community Survey, the current source of official data at the local level. (The statistical records for a few communities were incomplete, leading to their exclusion from ACBJís rankings.)
