High-Tech Hot Spots

Rank & File

Surprised by our rankings?

Argue with Steve Hess, director of analytical services for Dun & Bradstreet and the guru behind the numbers. Hess explains the rankings are based on two criteria: 1. the concentration of high-tech businesses (i.e., what percentage of business activity is high-tech), and 2. entrepreneurial activity (i.e., how many businesses are less than 5 years old). Data came from Dun & Bradstreet's database of more than 11 million U.S. businesses.

The big surprise? According to Hess, it's the strong showing of New Jersey--with the fourth, seventh and 25th (Newark)-place finishers. "New Jersey doesn't have a high-tech image," says Hess, "but our data show there's a substantial amount of [high-tech activity] happening."
