Overview of Cluster Strategy


Hamden’s Cluster strategy is part of our efforts to meet the needs of small business in a more structured and focused way. For the last ten years, Hamden has used the Business Cluster approach to plan effective strategies for community revitalization as well as to serve as a catalyst for economic growth. On behalf of our Business Clusters, we have tackled legislative, marketing, and workforce issues while tailoring our incentive programs to meet their financing needs.

Hamden’s Business Clusters are:

  • Health Care
  • Manufacturing
  • Retail
  • The Creative Industries
  • Workforce Development
  • Financial Services/Insurance
  • Green Cluster
  • Real Estate
We are excited to develop new strategies that will help make our Business Clusters thrive. We believe that ongoing dialogue with the companies in our Business Clusters is a cost effective and productive approach to Business Retention as well as Business Recruitment.

This way of addressing the business community’s needs has resulted in the long-range plans that we have renewed again and again. Out track record speaks for itself. Hamden now has a good business retention record and has recruited some quality companies and real estate investors throughout the State and in the region.
