LOCATION

Hub55 is located in New Haven, in the state of Connecticut, one of North America's premier business corridors, less than two hours' drive from New York and Boston and very close to major Canadian centers in Ontario and Quebec. Solid economy, clear rules, aggressive financial incentives, skilled workforce and prime location are some of the attractions that have made several international companies choose to settle in Connecticut. The support provided to entrepreneurs by the government is also a differential in the choice of the location of the future company.

WHY NEW HAVEN

  • A multicultural and vibrant city with 130,000 inhabitants, New Haven is "large enough to be interesting, yet small enough to be friendly."
