Des Moines, Iowa- Yesterday, Governor Terry Brandstad officially threw his hat in the ring on the epic twitter battle known as “Top states for doing business”. Sponsored by CNBC, States compete in 10 different categories to be known officially as the best state for doing business. "We are excited to launch this promotional campaign, because Iowa has dedicated, hard-working people and some of the best employers in the country," said Governor Branstad in a statement. "We intend to highlight Iowa's benefits through this video, and through our Twitter account."
Why is the title of being the best state for business so important? Well there’s the bragging rights for one. Most importantly, states that are known for being pro business attract better talent, which creates more jobs, which creates more businesses. Also, with Des Moines having been voted the best place for young professionals, this win would solidify Iowa as a power player in the economy. Iowa has plenty to offer in the way of technology, quality of living, and jobs. The winning states will be announced July 12th. There is still time for Iowa to win, simply send a tweet with the hashtag #TopStatesIA .
