Stamford is home to some really awesome companies. Count them up, we have four Fortune 500 Companies, nine Fortune 1000 Companies, and 13 Courant 100 Companies. And just about every large multi-national company has a reason to do business with the divisions of the hundred of  large corporations that keep an office here. Stamford is the economic gateway to New England. This gives Stamford some street cred in having one of the largest concentrations of corporations in the nation. But it is all not about big business. We are home to innovators and startups, family businesses and creative individuals who are pursuing the next big thing.

 

Living in Stamford

Here in Stamford we live in spacious city lofts overlooking the harbor. We live in little houses with gardens and large apartment buildings with all the amenities. We live on quiet tree-lined streets and above the brick sidewalks of a bustling entertainment district. And we know our neighbors. We see them at coffee shops and corner stores, bakeries, and bars; places on par with those in bigger cities, but on a smaller scale (just like our rents and mortgages when you compare us to New York).

Living Resources

  • Community Life + Organizations
  • Education + Kids
  • Food + Foodies
  • Independent Media
  • Neighborhoods

Space is abundant here, you can find your living style in our many neighborhoods, each with their local personality. Networking works. The city is safe. And perhaps most importantly, life in Stamford is filled with happy moments around the corner.

While Stamford is often praised for its vibrant downtown and access to nature, its food scene, and its commitment to arts and culture is one of Stamford’s greatest assets is size. The city is large enough to be diverse and endlessly interesting, yet small enough to retain a strong sense of community. Here today, as in our past, we have committed creative thinkers and entrepreneurs who have innovated and invented. We love living and working here and think you will too.

 

Working in Stamford

Stamford works primarily because of its people. We attract people from all over the world due to our corporate communities, but people remain here because of a unique balance of factors: Stamford is dense enough to host dynamic communities in almost any discipline, quiet enough to allow sustained concentration and productivity, busy enough to never run out of things to do or people to meet, beautiful enough to energize the body and inspire the spirit, and delicious enough that you don’t need to go elsewhere.

Working Resources

  • Incubators + Business Counseling
  • Investment + Incentives
  • Professional Groups
  • Workspaces

Stamford is just this great environment to do creative things in because not only is it connected to the world, but the size of the city lends itself to this incredible friendliness.

But being here is only half the story, Stamford is less than an hour from Grand Central Terminal in the heart of NYC. Clients, customers, funders and mentors are just a train ride away. You can build here, and connect everywhere.
