Hamilton Is Where Innovation Goes To Work

Hamilton was built around a legacy of advanced manufacturing, which continues to be a huge contributor to the local economy. Additional technologically-advanced industries have grown naturally to support the manufacturing cluster, creating a community that embraces cutting-edge science and technology.

Hamilton is also home to world-class universities, colleges, and research-intensive companies that have created an ideal environment for new product development and innovation. Industry and academia work together in Hamilton to lower the cost of commercialization and bringing products to market. Startups and entrepreneurs thrive in this hard working, high-tech city, where the cost of entry is very competitive with other tech-centric cities in the region.
