Raleigh can't keep it's name off lists lately as the cities most recent award comes on the heels of it's fast growing tech scene. Raleigh is ranked number 6 on the Dell Future Ready Economies Model, coming in behind cities such as San Jose, San Francisco/Oakland, Washington D.C., Boston, and Austin.

The region’s human capital score, particularly in the area of resident education, was well above the average of other cities. Its infrastructure more than compensated for a below-average commerce ranking, in part due to a very high score for its relatively uncongested highways." - Says the report about Raleigh.
