Kalamazoo loosing out?

6 posts in this topic


I think it's important to note that these companies are staying in Kalamazoo County. A person can still work at the biotech firm mentioned in the article in Portage and live in Kalamazoo. Besides, if anything, this shows that Kalamazoo is really turning into a good place to start a modern, high-tech business.

If we can get that moniker to stick, and if we can get a whole bunch of new start ups, even if many or most of them leave, as far as the one's who stay are concerned you still have a net growth in high tech regional jobs, which overall is good for Kalamazoo.

I think this article is a sign of good news!

I don't see it as a problem.

They left a business incubator (a good thing...this is what incubators are for) and moved to a commerce park.

Sure, it'd be better if they located downtown or something, but apparently they wanted the comfort only a bland, uninspiring office park can provide.

The good news is, a small business used the incubator for its intended purpose (start, grow, graduate to real office space) without leaving the area.

True, overall it is great to see this company succeed....and it is great they are at least sticking around very nearby. I guess with the last company moving downtown, I wanted to see the trend somehow continue.
