“University graduates, plus high-skilled university employees, provide a large available pool of educated, talented people who can be employed by businesses that move to Columbus,” wrote Noah Smith of Bloomberg. “Combine that educated workforce with a reputation for business-friendly policies, and you have a powerful lure for companies looking for a location for their next office, as well as startups.”
Smith goes on to comment on Columbus’ commitment to sustaining growth through strategic urban planning.
“A big, good, well-funded university, smart urban planning, and a welcoming business climate can help turn smaller cities like Madison, Wisconsin into regional economic powerhouses, or help revive stagnant old industrial cities like Cleveland, Milwaukee, and St. Louis.”
