Amazon is looking, but where is your next innovation hub?

October 26, 2017

Since they’re planning on bringing as much as $5 billion in investment and as many as 50,000 jobs, they have the leverage to come to the table with a pretty specific wish list. The tech giant wants to set up in a city of over a million people, with stable business growth, good local transit options, an international airport and a university hub for recruiting. On top of this they’d like an ethnically diverse local population and are offering bonus points for sustainable infrastructure. Oh, and they’re looking for considerable tax incentives, which may be the most important thing of all, though no one wants to come straight out and say it.
