Raleigh and the Triangle often ranking highly on “best of” reports such as places to work, to build a career, to retire, and for quality of life as well as cost of living. A reporter from WalletHub earlier this week, however, said Raleigh lags as a place where women own businesses.
The Capital City also scores well as a technology hub. Raleigh has a presence of high-tech firms like Red Hat in downtown to IBM, Cisco and scores of others in Research Triangle Park. Raleigh also has many financial and insurance services add to the region’s appeal.
The Research Triangle region is named named after the three research institutions in the area: Duke University, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. The area also includes NCCU and numerous small private colleges. This combination leads to new talent, new residents and a vibrant community.
