City of Fort Collins
Dan Contouris, TSM

Another top-ten list and another win for Fort Collins. Techie.com has put together a list of the most promising tech hubs to watch in 2014 and Fort Collins, Colorado made their top ten.

All the cities that made the top ten list:

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Champaign/Urbana, IL
  • Ft. Collins, CO
  • Kansas City, KS/MO
  • Sioux Falls, SD
  • Burlington, VT
  • Detroit, MI
  • Huntsville, AL
  • Orlando, FL
  • St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN

What did Techie have to say about Fort Collins? They liked that Colorado has the highest level of education per capita, that Fort Collins has some major resources and fcailities (Including Colorado State University, HP, Intel and Avago), the green movement encapsulated by Rocky Mountain Innosphere, and the fact the we are consistently on major lists of top places to live in the United States.

Pats on the back, all around!

Now, how did Techie come up with their list?

Techie.com’s editorial staff researched some of the most exciting and innovative up-and-coming hubs for 2014. We looked for several factors, some of which are a little less tangible than others:

  • Cities that have, or are building out physical infrastructure including fiber optic rings; offer lower costs for utilities; and have available and low-cost office space.
  • Presence of high-tech industrial parks and incubators/accelerators.
  • A “startup culture” evident with smaller, informal meetups, “startup weekends” and co-working spaces.
  • People who are willing and anxious to spread the word about why their city is on the rise.
  • Presence of one or more universities.
  • Support from city government with innovative programs designed to encourage tech startup growth.
