Study: Hartford has “strong startup potential”
A new analysis of the status of the business startup community in six American cities – including Hartford – has found that Connecticut’s Capitol City has “strong startup potential,” and in some ways is already standing out among peers and competitors.
Startup Genome, with support from the Kauffman Foundation, selected six U.S. metropolitan areas that are not in the top 40 most populous and which have been faring less well economically than the country as a whole for a deeper analysis. In addition to Hartford, the analysis includes Albuquerque, Fresno, New Orleans, Reno and Springfield, MA.
Hartford receives highest rating for sustainability
Mayor Luke Bronin said that Sustainable CT gave Hartford a Silver Certification.
The city demonstrated achievements for areas including clean transportation, resilient planning, diverse housing, and vibrant and creative cultural ecosystems.

But the projects have the power to reshape Hartford in a way that promises to position it for growth in an era when cities nationwide are flourishing.
