Worcester thrived as a manufacturing powerhouse in the 19th century, and that same innovative and industrial spirit can still be felt today. Over the last few decades, the city has emerged as leader in the healthcare, higher education, life sciences, and IT industries. At the same time, there is a burgeoning culture of entrepreneurship in the city, as start-ups, incubators, and accelerators take up residence throughout Worcester at an unprecedented pace.
