Indiana - #1 Place to do Business in the Midwest!

 

Indianapolis City ScapeAs  residents of Greenwood, Indiana, we know it's a great place to live and work.  Still, it's nice to see what we already know validated in a national survey of business executives.


For the second year in a row, Indiana takes the number one spot in the Midwest as the best place to do business by "Chief Executive" magazine.  Each year the publication surveys over 500 chief executive officers on a broad range of issues and uses those findings to compile a list of the best and worst states for jobs and business growth. 


Indiana ranked 11th in the Nation overall, 3rd in business friendliness, 4th in transportation and 6th in cost of business.   This combined with our ranking as the most affordable place to live in another national survey promotes confidence that hoosiers are on the right track!  For the full report, visit http://www.chiefexecutive.net/ME2/Default.asp.
