Knoxville, TN: America's Best Business Address

I'm excited to be living and working in Knoxville, TN, a city poised to become America's Best Business Address. This initiative is being led by the Knoxville Chamber, of which our company, Slamdot, is a member. I think the concept is great, and I know it's possible. I also think it can happen somewhat quickly, given the natural beauty of the area, it's centralized location at the crossroads of major Interstates connecting a majority of the U.S. population within a day's drive, and the excellent resources, from Oak Ridge to the University of Tennessee, along with the presence of many large companies such as Pilot, Bandit Lites, Regal Entertainment, Bush Brothers, Sea Ray Boats, TVA, HGTV and so on.

The focus is on broad issues like infrastructure, transportation and more, along with tools to help businesses diagnose, analyze and find resources for inefficiencies or possible fallacies in multiple areas, from accounting and marketing, to technology and HR. If these are all improved drastically, along with education in the area, then we can easily become a top location for businesses and families to relocate and grow. There are signs and existing proof that we're already in progress towards that goal, and have been for a few years now.

Get engaged and involved by joining the Knoxville Chamber Facebook Fan Page as a fan, and following Knoxville Chamber's Twitter updates.

Good luck Knoxville!
