Want to start a business? Raleigh and Durham are among the best places

Mandy Mitchell, WRAL reporterMay 24, 2019

When James Avery started his tech business eight years ago, he considered launching it from a from one of the country’s high-profile tech meccas.

“We were really close to going to Seattle,” said Avery.

But he settled on Durham. He and his wife looked all over the country and fell in love with North Carolina for its beaches and for its tech scene.

“One of the great things here is you don’t have to be the next Facebook -- you can make an impact on this area building a sustainable growing business,” he said.

That’s what Avery has done with Adzerk. It’s a company that helps other companies with internet needs like online advertising. The business started in the Bull City and has been growing ever since.
