If you were founding a company today, would you base it in Rhode Island?

Posted 12/18/11

Much attention has been focused lately on creating a more hospitable startup culture in Rhode Island. The reason is simple – attracting large employers to the Ocean State is a difficult proposition.

Thus, the state’s business and political leaders are realizing that growing the state’s work force will require a large amount of organic growth. And that requires companies being birthed and nurtured here.

The question is, has the state turned a corner in terms of its perception in the business community relative to startups?
