Our unique quality of life contributes to the city’s economic vitality.
Today, Reno is pioneering an economic future as one of the United States’ clean energy, technology, and entrepreneurial leaders. Our region is home to 13 geothermal companies and a number of advanced manufacturers. Reno was recently cited by the Kauffman Foundation as the country’s “most consistent standout” for startups. And with Nevada’s designation as one of six national test sites for Unmanned Aerial Systems, there is an emerging concentration of aviation, research-and-development, and high-tech industries.
The Reno area is serviced by two major highways. Union Pacific railroad and a number of trucking and airline carriers make it possible to ship from Reno to 80% of the 11 western states on a next-day basis.
