Start, Connect and Succeed in New Hampshire

The foundation of the New Hampshire economy stands on Yankee ingenuity and the boldness of its motto, Live Free or Die. It was true centuries ago, when one of the largest textile mills in the world was built in Manchester, to today, where those same mills are home to 21st century research and development changing the world of tomorrow.

With that spirit of innovation and vision, combined with the competitive advantages its business climate and quality of life offers, New Hampshire is not only the perfect place for entrepreneurs to put down roots, but to grow and thrive. Throughout the state, they can become a part of biotech and life science clusters and tech hubs, finding within them networks, mentors, access to capital, an educated and enthusiastic workforce, and co-working spaces.

The Department of Business and Economic Affairs offers services and resources to help entrepreneurs take their ideas from vision to reality. Working with a strong network of partners, BEA can clear the path and guide them through everything, from finding a site and obtaining permits, to customized assistance with job training, international trade, government contracting, and more.
