Hamden has experienced the growth of many industries, such as healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and finance. Entrepreneurship runs deep throughout the Town. The Department of Economic and Neighborhood Development has discovered that there are between 200-300 home-based or solopreneur businesses in Hamden. This discovery has led to the establishment of a cluster for entrepreneurs who work alone.
Establishing the solopreneur cluster is proving to be essential to help with the success of future small business growth in Hamden. Solopreneurs are often challenged because they are responsible for everything from marketing, production, accounting, etc. Often times, the solopreneurs may be starting their first business, and may not be sure what the rules and regulations are for running their business. This is where the work of the solopreneur cluster can help.
To help solopreneurs, the Department of Economic and Neighborhood Development also offers the Business Assistance Center (BAC). The BAC offers free, professional services to solopreneurs, whether it is creating an effective business plan to help with the businesses growth, or how to better market their business.
To also help further their growth, the Hamden Economic Development Corporation (HEDC) has completed the Hamden Business Incubator, also known as BOROUGH496. The business incubator offers space to lease, shared meeting rooms and amenities, guest speakers, and training programs.
