Regional Profiles

When it comes to tech in Massachusetts, most people are familiar with Boston and Cambridge, but our state tech ecosystem actually extends far beyond these two cities.

Old mill towns are reinventing themselves with robotics, factories are converting to modern office space, and talent is increasingly on the move. From suburbs to cities to regions, Mass communities are actively attracting, growing, and supporting tech at all levels. We’ve profiled some of those communities here, and we hope you’ll share what you’ve learned with your own communities too!
