Recent Reviews in Laurel

Sitting in Jones County of Mississippi that is known as the "Start-up State", Laurel has a small population of only 18,540 souls walking its' streets, so you are bound to get up close and friendly with the locals. Mississippi has a long history of startups and entrepreneurship. It's touted as being where business creators and entrepreneurs flourish with a government that supports innovation and encourages economic growth. Home to Mississippi's oldest art museum that was established by the family of Lauren Eastman Rogers, Laurel has also featured in the HGTV series of "Home Town". Founded in 1882 as a lumber town, by the turn of the century it became the site of cotton mills. Today it is home to coworking venues catering to the intrepid locals that have no wish to leave their own backyards.

Mississippi has been ranked as 5th in the country for entrepreneurship in markets that cross a broad spectrum reflecting a diverse economy from telecommunications to agricultural startups, plus software and logistics. Many tech companies do have dramas finding enough talent as they grow, but there have been some major winners such as SmartSynch and Bomgar to name a couple. FNC has become the "poster child" for a life-cycle of a tech startup when it recently sold out for $475 million.

Mississippi's startups are often created out of necessity, because there are not many large multi-national or public companies within its boundaries. In a state that is known for having the ability to create opportunities, it's little wonder that coworking venues have become the de rigueur place to hang out, connect and collaborate amongst the innovative crowd.
