In this post, small business advocate Becky McCray reveals some data from Street Sense, an organization attempting to identify small towns and mid sized cities that fit into a category the group calls Investment Ready Places. They've put together a report and a checklist so that you can determine whether your small town or mid sized city has such potential. You can then list your town on their IRP Locator, a map that attempts to identify areas with the potential for business growth and also make determinations about your own business and whether a particular small town or mid sized city is right for your company as a place to grow or expand.
