Point2 has analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to reveal which cities are the most future-ready. In their analysis, they considered 30 key metrics distributed across five categories, each shedding light on a different aspect of urban innovation: Business & Technology; Internet Connectivity; Environment & Sustainability; Transit & Mobility; and Economy & Demographics.
Their report aggregates the factors that reflect what cities are working on today for a better tomorrow — from the obvious (like internet access, tech job openings, and air quality) to key indicators that can help paint a wider picture of what’s yet to come (such as the number of recent invention patents and building permits issued so far this year).
This photo gallery lists the Top 10 future-ready cities and their ranking in the five spheres of future readiness categories from Point2. To learn more about the five categories used by Point2, or to view the full 100 rankings, visit their website.
