Forbes Magazine just ranked Raleigh the Best Place for Business! We beat out cities like Atlanta and Austin to take the top spot. There are tons of reasons why we agree with this distinction, but the folks at Forbes highlighted our highly educated population and business costs as the major reasons for the ranking. This is just another great nod to the city and all of the awesome #SmartyPants in it!

You can check out the Triangle Business Journal article on the award here, and take a look at the Forbes slideshow here.
