Area experts say that a healthy economic environment and strong growth prospects in particular sectors are giving a positive message to businesses all around the Capital District: It’s a good time to be in business right here, right now.
“2018 is an ideal time to begin a business. Albany creates a lot of employment as well as opportunities for vendors supplying the Capital, from paper and hardware to restaurants and other service areas,” said Anthony Ianniello, an attorney and president of Ianniello Anderson PC. “There is a stable economic environment in the Capital Region.”
Moreover, the nano-tech center and colleges in and around Albany, and GlobalFoundries headquartered in Malta, create excellent opportunities for suppliers of both materials and expertise, he said.
Ianniello’s advice for ongoing businesses in the service industry is to “drill down on how to best provide services to customers.” To do that, it’s imperative for sales and marketing to be entrenched in the digital world, he said.
