Knoxville's roots run deep and strong. The city has served as the hub of the region since its founding in 1791. The best of its Appalachian heritage remains today - a strong work ethic, a family-centered community, and an intense respect for the natural beauty that envelopes the region.

While Knoxville is well grounded, it is also strongly positioned for the future and the technology-based world of business. One of the country's five national labs sits in Knoxville's backyard in Oak Ridge. The main campus of the University of Tennessee is home to nationally acclaimed schools of engineering, business, and law. Seventeen additional colleges and training programs in the region produce a ready supply of trained workers. All these organizations feed the strong entrepreneurial spirit found in Knoxville.

Just as advanced technology resources connect Knoxville to the future; its location connects it to the roadways of the nation. Three of the nation's major interstates - I-40, I-75, I-81 - intersect in Knoxville.

Knoxville is not a well-kept secret. The area has been recognized by national lifestyle and business magazines as a fantastic place to live and work. Some of those rankings include:

  • Forbes magazine, Best Places for Business & Careers - ranked #5
  • Expansion Management magazine, America's 50 Hottest Cities for Business Relocation & Expansion - ranked #9
