‘Hi, It’s Amazon Calling. Here’s What We Don’t Like in Your City.’ – #makerbusiness

‘Hi, It’s Amazon Calling. Here’s What We Don’t Like in Your City.’ – WSJ.

Amazon.com Inc. has made about 200 phone calls to cities the retail giant rejected for its second headquarters. Some of the cities say they are learning from the disappointing phone conversations and making changes.

Cincinnati and Sacramento, Calif., are restructuring workforce development programs to focus on tech talent. Orlando, Fla., is considering starting a community fund to invest in local tech companies and draw more entrepreneurs. In Detroit, elected officials and business leaders are pushing a ballot initiative for a new regional transportation network that would connect outer counties to the city.

Amazon has selected 20 finalists from 238 applicants from metro areas and regions like Detroit and Baltimore to small towns in Texas for its $5 billion second corporate headquarters, which it has said could create up to 50,000 high-paying jobs.

Interesting, I think we had predicted it would be in the Boston area, we’ll see if that prediction was accurate soon.
