Incentives


Shippan Landing

It's no secret that Stamford is a business engine for the State of Connecticut. Thanks to many generous tax incentives by both the city and the state, Stamford has had continued growth and success over the past four decades. Key tax incentives, such as the Enterprise Zone which has helped redevelop underutilized industrial zones, and the Entertainment Zone which has given digital media and production a boost, have helped put Stamford on the map. This combined with many coworking spaces for startups, multiple business development groups such as the Stamford Chamber of Commerce and the Connecticut Women's Business Development Council, and an excess of venture capital firms in the area, have created an environment of constant business growth.
