Louisville, Ky. – Google has named Louisville as one of its 50 eCities this year.
“Google’s eCity Awards recognize the strongest online business community in each state. These cities’ businesses are using the web to find new customers, connect with existing customers and fuel their local economies,” the website says.
According to the site, Google and Ipsos MORI, an independent research firm, “analyzed the online strength of local small businesses in cities in all fifty states. The city with the highest scores in each state was designated a Google eCity.”
Along with being the home to the Kentucky Derby and the Urban Bourbon Trail, Google says Louisville is “also a bastion of technology, serving as the home of TechFestLou, a technology festival with several days of talks, workshops and more, attended by tech CEOs and engineers alike.”
