In the July issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance, the magazine staff details their picks for the best cities in the country for jobs, innovation, and prosperity for the next decade. Austin, Texas, is a good place for small businesses, like Rob Neville's biotech firm, Savara Pharmaceuticals, Kiplinger's says. Seattle's business and research scene make it a great place for "top-flight medical and bioscience centers," and companies there are hiring, the magazine says. Boulder, Colo. is a great place for science with the University of Colorado, federal research labs, and thousands of small businesses, all operating together, according to the article. For genomics, Rochester, Minn., is the place to be — it's home to the Mayo Clinic, the Minnesota Partnership for Biotechnology and Medical Genomics, and the University of Minnesota at Rochester. The city also opened the Minnesota BioBusiness Center in 2009, Kiplinger's says.
