Boise, ID: Work and play

Got a start-up idea? Boise wants you. The Idaho city has garnered high marks from Forbes as one of the top places to start a business. Micron is a top gun and the city’s biggest employer, Inovus Solar is here, and nearby you’ll find Tsheets and Sky Detective.

Good work means a little play too: Boise Bicycle Project discounts bikes for residents (and teaches them how to fix their two wheels); and the ski area 16 miles from downtown, Bogus Basin resort, is a nonprofit, keeping extracurricular sports affordable. Life should be a balance.
