Wilmington Named One Of Three Rising Tech Hubs

When companies look to open new offices, not only does location matter but so does being business friendly. Wilmington, being centralized between three major cities (New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore) makes it easy for people to travel to each city but with lower taxes on running a business, it makes sense for companies to take root here. According to and JP Morgan and Chase, that is what makes us one of the top rising tech hubs.

Delaware Innovation Week is a misnomer. When an event encompasses NINE days of programming, you might just have to call it a happening. Entering its fourth year, Delaware Innovation Week is a celebration of technology and innovation that runs from November 2-10, 2018...

Studio One Eleven

The warm lathering cream, the feeling of the razor-sharp blade against the back of the neck, the precise touch-ups around the ear. It’s no doubt the best part of the haircut and it’s not on the menu at most strip-mall chop shops, but it is at Studio One Eleven on Market. The Gin Experience cut, that’s the one to get.
