HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Entrepreneur Magazine has named Huntsville number 14 among the top 25 cities in the U.S. for high tech startups.

The magazine based its findings on the idea that tech startups are new businesses with a concentration of employees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.

The accomplishment came as no surprise to Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle.   “We brand ourselves as a smart city, where technology marries engineering to provide a vibrant, progressive economy,” said Mayor Battle in a news release.
