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.

In fact, I've often been of the opinion that small towns or medium sized cities make great incubators for startups assuming there is sufficient talent available.
