Inc. Magazine Goes Local for Business Meccas

One of my favorite publications for entreprenuers, Inc. Magazine has just launched 12 local sections for major business hubs around the world.

Each city’s local section has 5 featured articles, sub-categories of local topics of interest and a full archive of articles related to the city.

For example, the San Francisco local section has a great feature on how to find the perfect location for your Bay Area startup. It includes this Google map by Posterous founder Gary Tan; a must see.

The page also includes sub-sections for the city, including Venture Capitol, Google, Facebook, Digg, startup incubator Y Combinator, Silicon Valley and other topics of interest.

I think these geo-features are an excellent idea that will become an increasing trend. They show a lot of promise towards engaging readers on a personal level which will lead to lots of referrals for Inc. Magazine.

The next step would be to integrate the local sections with popular social networks and include real-time feeds from Twitter and Foursquare.

Here is the full list of new local sections for you to explore:

Inc. Magazine plans to include more cities in the coming months.
