What are some top trending places or cities that have a growing startup scene that people may be unaware of?

Hey I recently stumbled upon this article in Forbes about Rhode Island – Rhode Island: The Startup State. Here’s an interesting bit from it:

“On the policy side, Rhode Island is the first state I know of to offer qualifying young people help with repaying student loan debts if they’re pursuing careers or starting businesses related to technology, engineering or design. The program has a fun name: the ‘Wavemaker Fellowship.’ The state also offers $2,000 tax credits for qualified buyers to purchase first homes in particular areas. Thirty regulatory barriers have been removed, and many more incentives and tax credits introduced that will move behavior on the ground.”
