Small Town Entrepreneurship
Posted by Gordon Smith

Anita at Small Business Trends posted a link to a story from the Kiplinger Letter about college graduates moving to "small towns." Among the "small towns" on the list: Provo, Utah, home to my alma mater, Brigham Young University. Since I am not a Kiplinger subscriber, I am not sure how they define "small town," but let me provide some assistance to the DC-based company: this -- my home town, population 1,500 -- is a small town. Provo is a small city, which (along with its sister city, Orem, and other surrounding communities) has long been quite an attractive spot for technology companies. WordPerfect and Novell were anchors of the 1980s economy, and many new technology companies are still operating in the region.
