With this being our last blog of the year, we thought we’d follow the trends to do a recap of some of the biggest highlights of the region. Hands-down is the explosive interest in businesses and families moving to Northern Nevada.
And that’s all good news for our architect firm in Incline Village, NV on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore that offers architectural services for residential and commercial properties.
To pull the whole year together in a short blog (we know you’re busy) I’ve taken some excerpts from a recent article re: “Record Number of Tech Companies Relocate to Reno/Sparks” as published in NORTHERN NEVADA BUSINESS VIEW
Go ahead and read on … and when you’re ready to purchase some land in Nevada and need a seasoned, local, Lake Tahoe architect to design your new mountain home or lakefront estate, reach out at any time.
RECORD NUMBER OF TECH COMPANIES RELOCATING TO NEVADA
It’s no secret the greater Reno-Sparks economy saw a surge of tech companies plug into the region in 2018.
That was no more apparent than at the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada’s “New and Expanded Companies” welcome reception Thursday, Dec. 6, at the Peppermill in Reno.
This year saw a record number of tech companies (11) and corporate headquarters (15) stake flags in the region. Technology-related businesses made up the largest segment of companies assisted by EDAWN, according to a press release.
One of those tech companies honored Dec. 6 was Talage , a software firm that provides a digital marketplace for small business insurance. Over the summer, the company set up its headquarters on South Wells Avenue in Reno.
“All the things EDAWN’s been striving to do the past few years, I think they’re backing it up,” Adam Kiefer, Talage CEO and cofounder, told the NNBV. “And Reno is making that shift from essentially a transportation, warehousing hub to a legitimate tech player. And I think we’re starting to make moves. We’ve got a long way to go. I think the more people that can move real headquarters and build real startups here … I think it’s big steps in the right direction.”
In closing, Mike Kazmierski, president, and CEO of EDAWN, said in a statement:
“The new opportunities this creates for our workforce are sure to have a positive impact for generations to come and I couldn’t be more excited.”
Here’s to a very healthy and prosperous new year!
