Why Choose Dorchester?
"The Eastern Shore Innovation Center has helpful and accommodating staff, a bright and modern space, high speed internet and anything else you could need to incubate a tech startup on the Eastern Shore. I highly recommend visiting!"
"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."
"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."
"I would not want to be anywhere else in the world, or doing anything else than what I am doing today."
"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."
"Dorchester is not only a beautiful scenic county with abundant wildlife and outdoor recreation, but the people are friendly and our relaxed lifestyle offers a great place to do business and raise a family."
"I enjoy working in Dorchester because of the gorgeous open space public lands such as Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park and Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge provide. The sunrises and sunsets are magnificent. People here are passionate and helpful. Dorchester is also affordable, so my money goes farther."
"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."
"Dorchester is home. I returned after college and dove into our family business. There is an authentic sense of community here - a general "get the job done" attitude. Combined with the natural balance of four distinct seasons, access to the Choptank River and waterways, and more seafood, farms and wildlife than you can shake a stick at, I'd say it's a pretty great place to live."
