Favorable corporate laws have drawn mega-companies to Delaware, including Chase, which recently completed construction on a global tech hub right outside the city's borders.

This has encouraged development at a local level, with several smaller companies taking root in Wilmington in recent years. Add to that a small town ecosystem that breeds collaboration and the nearby Delaware Technology Park, home to more that 50 science and technology businesses, and you can see why Wilmington is flourishing.
