Capital One study finds majority residents upbeat about DFW’s tech prospects

Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) residents agree the Metroplex is thriving with innovation, technology opportunities and growing tech skill sets according to a Capital One study released today – and they think it will only get better.

In addition, an overwhelming majority of residents (87 percent) say they have a high quality of life, with over half (56 percent) citing access to quality education and skills training as some of the area’s greatest assets.

The findings are the result of the Capital One Future Edge DFW opinion survey, which asked residents to share their views on the future of technological innovation in their community and the evolution of the area’s workforce.
