Yes, yes! Raleigh (not Cary, not Durham) has made it to the top! While all the things they list in this article are absolutely true, the momentum that's taking place in the startup/entrepreneur space cannot be overlooked. I am a true testiment to that. So many helpful and enthusiastic folks looking to put Raleigh on the map as a not only a great place to raise a family and a night out on the town, but as a great place to follow your dreams in launching a start-up. I feel so fortunate! ~ Tonia
