Energy capital of the world.
Thanks to a business economy as booming as it is diverse, Houstonians do more than enjoy the great outdoors. From oil exploration and medical research to agriculture and education, Houston’s economy makes the city attractive to businesses, international corporations and entrepreneurs looking for unlimited opportunity. It’s not surprising that 23 Fortune 500 companies have chosen to set up headquarters in Houston.
Although nicknamed Energy Capital of the World, Houston’s world-class Medical Center can’t be overlooked. The largest medical center in the world employs over 50,000 people and sees millions of patients every year.
