Nicknamed the “Elm City,” New Haven is both steeped in history and booming with creativity and innovation. Thanks to Yale University, one of the world’s premier institutions for higher learning and research, and Yale-New Haven Health, one of the nation’s top healthcare systems, New Haven increasingly functions as one large business incubator and accelerator for dozens of biotech, pharmaceutical, and medical-device companies. Once the state’s co-capital, New Haven also serves as Connecticut’s cultural hub, boasting an abundance of established theaters, museums, music venues, award-winning restaurants, and artistic events.
Working together, these economic forces sustain a growing, increasingly diverse, and exciting community, forming one of the most attractive small cities in the country in which to work, live, and visit. As the most walkable and eminently affordable city between New York City and Boston, New Haven offers the perfect place for creative people with ideas to innovate. Perhaps that’s why John Traynor, Chief Investment Officer from People’s Bank, recently stated that “The future of Connecticut is going to be driven by the New Haven engine.” Isn’t it time you discovered the best-kept secret in New England for yourself? www.newhavenct.gov
