Stamford – Just the Right Work/Life Balance
With major companies and entrepreneurial opportunities, plus city streets that are bustling with nightlife, restaurants, entertainment, and more — this city’s got it.
Stamford has become the base for a growing entrepreneurial community, with plenty of coworking and incubator spaces and startups constantly popping up. The city is boosting momentum by partnering with UConn Stamford and Stamford Public Schools to enhance workforce development programs and build a workforce talent pipeline.
Lots of companies are relocating to Stamford, from digital media and fintech to consumer product companies. If you’re looking for Fortune 500 status, you can take your pick. Charter Communications, Synchrony Financial, United Rentals, and W. R. Berkley are all Fortune 500s headquartered here. Plus, you’ll find recognizable names such as Cuisinart, WWE, Vineyard Vines, and KAYAK.
And since Stamford’s big on work/life balance, you’ll find tons to do. At night, the city is alive and buzzing with a young community and plenty of fun. Discover Cisco Brewers and great private party spaces at The Village or enjoy fantastic bites, cocktails, and a rooftop bar at Sign of the Whale (which also has igloo seating during winter).
Expect a range of activities and organizations for young professionals to get involved in, plus a dynamic arts and culture scene and urban center. The Downtown Special Services District hosts a concert series, Alive @ Five, every summer, and Mill River Park is host to several festivals, including the Hey Stamford! Food Truck Festival.
