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.

Small towns and medium sized cities are definitely diamonds in the ruff. Opportunities abound and often costs are considerably lower for a really great lifestyle. 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.
