The city of Charleston’s high-technology arm has earned some kudos from a website that caters to young business owners.

“Charleston is becoming a prime location for information technology jobs and corporations and has experienced some highest growth in this sector between 2011 and 2012 due in large part to the Charleston Digital Corridor,” according to Under30CEO.com.

The corridor is private-public initiative that operates two “Flagship” business incubators near East Bay and Calhoun streets.

The website highlighted the group in its recent ranking of the 30 best places in the country for entrepreneurs. Charleston took the No. 3 spot in the small city category. Chattanooga was No. 1, followed by Columbia, Mo.

In the big city category, the high-tech mecca of Austin, Texas, was No. 1.
