DALLAS--()--Entrepreneur, investor and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban wants millennials to move to Dallas – and he’s not being shy about touting the reasons why his adopted hometown is the best in the country for the millennial workforce.

In a recently released video, Cuban highlights what makes Dallas the ideal place for passionate entrepreneurs who want to impact the future, including a friendly business climate and high quality of life.

“If you’re young and you’re getting ready to start a business, no matter where you live in the world, I’d say, ‘Come to Dallas,’ because it’s friction-free, it’s really quick, simple and easy to start a company,” Cuban says. “There’s just a different work ethic here. …Every single day, there’s incredible entrepreneurs looking to invent the future.”

Cuban’s opinion of the region is reinforced by the area's numerous accolades: Dallas consistently ranks as one of the top places for job growth and millennial relocation in the country, and Texas has been named one of the top states for small businesses, with Dallas receiving an “A+” grade.

“Mark’s enthusiasm for Dallas reflects the strength of our city and the extensive opportunities that are available to our residents,” said Dale Petroskey, President and CEO of the Dallas Regional Chamber. “We can’t wait to show people around the country what we’ve known for a long time: Dallas offers the best career opportunities in one of the most diverse, dynamic and affordable markets in the United States. There’s simply no better place and no better time to be here.”

This spring, the Dallas Regional Chamber (DRC) launched its integrated Talent Attraction campaign, Say Yes to Dallas. The campaign has since spread awareness of the region via social media, interviews, and now through one of the area’s most influential leaders, Mark Cuban.

The video can be viewed on the Say Yes to Dallas website, which in accordance with the video has launched a new jobs portal that highlights various job openings available in the area to potential employees.
