Why Choose Dorchester?
"As someone who was raised in Dorchester – and spent my career working internationally - I wouldn’t want to live nor work anywhere else. From our beautiful landscapes and outdoor recreation to our close-knit community and proximity to major cities, Dorchester is a great place to raise a family and enjoy an Eastern Shore lifestyle."
"The people in Dorchester County are amazing and Cambridge is special because of the location. Obviously it’s gorgeous, we’re right on the water."
"Terrific place to get advice and direction if starting a business in Dorchester County Maryland."
"I would not want to be anywhere else in the world, or doing anything else than what I am doing today."
"I enjoy working in Dorchester because there are an increasing number of millennials relocating, building lives and thriving here. There is a great deal of potential to reach your professional and personal goals, live the dream and leave your mark."
"One of the things I love about living and working here is the amazing energy. There are a lot of great things happening simultaneously right now and I’m constantly meeting new people who are excited to be engaged and involved. It’s a great feeling to watch and be part of the progress unfolding in my hometown."
"I think of the Eastern Shore Innovation Center as my Productivity Destination. The co-working space is warm, welcoming, and well-stocked. The management team at the Innovation Center are always friendly, helpful, and welcoming. The other entrepreneurs I meet are all working in hard and inspiring fashion on fascinating projects that are all over the map. My business takes me here, there, and everywhere on the Delmarva Peninsula, but this is my ideal place to get things done and moving forward."
"Dorchester provides the close community feeling that small businesses thrive. Our county has so many driven people with incredible ideas and resources. Collaborating on a creative level and the friendships I’ve made makes this more than a "job" for me."
"After opening the Eastern Shore Dance Academy, I have met the most amazing children and families. Our community has so much talent."
"I was born and raised here, and although my career initially took me to DC, I realized very soon that I belong on the Shore. My husband and I spend our free time enjoying the Chesapeake’s gifts: Boating, hunting, fishing, crabbing, and skiffing through the marshes. You won’t find a more welcoming community with as much heritage and history as Dorchester."
