Two More Companies Move HQs Out of California

Yesterday I posted details regarding 15 companies that moved their HQs out of California and other business-unfriendly states, which were discovered in just a one-month period.

Today, we see two more announcements about headquarters leaving the formerly Golden State.

DARVIS, which stands for Data Analytic Real-World Visual Intelligence System, will move its headquarters from San Francisco to Nashville, Tennessee effective in June. Joel Stinnett reports in the Nashville Business Journal that the company uses artificial intelligence to automate procedures in the health care industry.

The Mutual UFO Network is moving its headquarters from Irvine in Orange County, California, to Cincinnati. Self described as the “world’s oldest and largest civilian UFO investigation and research organization,” MUFON has close to 600 investigators in all 50 states and in 46 countries around the world. See the Cincinnati Enquirer story Visitors among us: UFO researchers are making Cincinnati their new home.
