Springfield, Massachusetts, founded in 1636 by William Pynchon, has a proud history. From its earliest days, Springfield was a center of commerce. In the industrial age, the city was one of the largest, most prodigious manufacturing centers in the country. Springfield’s reputation was bolstered by the many innovations that sprung forth from the city’s residents.

Today, Springfield is once again becoming known for innovation and technology. From mentorship programs for entrepreneurs and accelerators for startups ready to scale to specialty incubators and training, the city is regaining its standing as a great place to start and grow a business. Springfield is also home to large employers including MassMutual, Baystate Health, five colleges, and a host of social and professional services organizations.
