DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Denver is ranked eighth in
the country for being a "future-ready" city, according to a new report.
The Dell Future Ready Economies Model ranked cities on three criteria: "the ability to attract people who are engaged in and open to lifelong learning that drives innovation; businesses that thrive in collaborative environments; and infrastructure that provides platforms for people to engage, collaborate, learn and innovate."
Dell said it worked with Englewood-based IHS and IHS Economics to find indicators that defined the criteria.
"“We’re very confident these cities will grow faster in the next five to ten years than most other cities,” said James Diffley, IHS Economics group managing director for U.S. Regional Services, in a statement.
Last week, another report detailed that Denver's technology industry is providing a boost to the city's office market.
