It’s Alive! Dallas-Fort Worth Is Emerging as a Hub for BioTech and Life Sciences

Over the years, I’ve come to expect to see our region at or near the top of most “best cities” or “best places for” lists, particularly when the ranking is based on economics, growth, or corporate recruitment.

We lead the nation in population and job growth. We’re No. 1 in both categories for 2019 and for the entire 2010 decade, for good reason.

Our region is a premier location in the U.S. for headquarters, manufacturers, and logistics. We’re home to an enviable roster of companies across major sectors like aerospace, automotive, data, energy, engineering, insurance, finance, food and beverage, retail, semiconductors, telecommunications, and transportation.

Eight Fortune 500 companies have decided to move headquarters here since 2004. The most recent is Charles Schwab, whose move to Westlake from San Francisco will take effect Jan. 1, 2021.

DFW is also out front with new and emerging sectors. Artificial intelligence, augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, big data, cybersecurity, and distributed ledger technology companies and jobs are here, and growing.

We have it all. Almost.
