The Greater Springfield region combines the best of a vibrant city on the move with the best of charming New England towns that have a more rural feel. We think that makes living and working here a smart decision.
The Knowledge Corridor, in the region of Springfield and Hartford, CT, is named for the area’s second-largest concentration of colleges and universities in the country. These institutions attract and educate a talented and diverse workforce.
One of our key initiatives is to champion business growth. As drivers of the region’s economic vitality, our mission is to help small businesses start, grow and expand.
