I think it's so important to be able to see where we, as a City, sit on the national scale. We already know how blessed we are with environmental beauty, access to nature, fine wine and great climate... but learning that we're developing a string entrepreneurial culture here just makes my heart sing! Entrepreneurs bring vibrancy and innovation. They often create jobs and if successful their ventures bring stability. Starting a business takes bravery and persistence - and support. I hope that this accolade helps to bring more focus to assisting new and expanding businesses to achieve their goals.
In the meantime -go hug an entrepreneur! They're doing their piece to make our home better!
