Asheville Ranks top 7 in Growth for Tech
Asheville’s MSA population is under 500,000 but it has long fought above its weight class when it comes to tourism, art, outdoor experiences, great restaurants and, of course, amazing breweries.
4 million people visit this very special city every year.
Now, Asheville is on its way to doing the same with the tech industry. LinkedIn data shows that Asheville is the seventh fastest-growing city in the USA for tech workers.
This achievement is due in no small part to initiatives like Venture Asheville and organizations such as Hatch and Mountain BizWorks. Tech entrepreneurs enjoy unwinding by kayaking, hiking, disc golf, and an IPA brewed locally but they cannot build a tech business without an infrastructure that supports their unique needs. From banking to law firms, to capital, to managed service providers, and access to a tech workforce — tech start-ups need partners that understand the tech industry. So, cheers to Venture Asheville for the heavy lifting they are doing.
Here at Electronic Office, we’re proud to share that IT advisors and solutions providers are very strong in Asheville too. We have grown to serve customers all around the world but we remain proud of our roots in Asheville NC which will always be our headquarters. There are 40,000 MSPs in the USA and 8,000 of them have the lion’s share of customers. MSPs represent $120 Billion of the tech revenues generated in the USA.
Amidst all of this, Asheville is home to not one, but two of the top 500 ranked MSPs in the world according to the deep dive annual research conducted by Channel Futures. Congratulations to Adam Brannon and TSA Choice for breaking into the top 500 for the first time in 2022.
