Wood shared that Chattanooga has potential to be “the next Austin” in terms of business, based on a recent Wall Street Journal article sharing what companies are looking for in a “headquarters city.”
What is a headquarters city?
Pretty much what it sounds like — a city in which major corporations want their headquarters to be located. Thanks to the pandemic, many of these corporations are rethinking what type of city they want for an HQ, and Austin recently made headlines for becoming a social media hub with companies like TikTok and Meta setting up shop.
What are they looking for + which boxes do we check?
And as an added bonus, as Wood points out in his LinkedIn post, we also have “easy access to two of the South’s most dynamic metros – #atlanta and #nashville.”
