Fort Worth is a Launching Pad for business

Fortune Magazine has named Fort Worth as a "launching pad for businesses."

Students interested in starting a business will not have to go far to find a start.
Fortune Small Business recently ranked Fort Worth the ninth-best place in the nation to "live and launch" a business. David Minor, director of the Neeley Entrepreneurship Center, said this designation will attract students to Neeley's entrepreneurship program. Minor said the ranking shows Fort Worth has a vibrant entrepreneurial environment and will boost the reputation of the entrepreneurship program. "It's now a destination school for entrepreneurs," Minor said.
Brad Hancock, assistant director of the Neeley Entrepreneurship Center, said Fort Worth has always been a maverick, and this designation shows that its pioneering, spirited atmosphere is now being recognized.
