The next big thing happens here, in a Midwestern mecca of technology. Here, at the conflux of opportunity and creativity, we don’t need a valley. We’ve developed into a high tech haven with a diverse mix of technology companies and a highly trained IT workforce. With up to 1 gigabit per second lightening-fast speeds, it’s no wonder we’re ranked the top city to work in tech.


One driving force behind our ability to attract new to market insurance companies is the cost advantage of low premium and retaliatory taxes. Dozens of insurance companies are headquartered here, adding to our impressive 2.1 location quotient. 3
