Wilmington is Delaware’s largest city and its greatest economic engine.

We are 30 minutes south of Philadelphia, mid-point between New York and Washington DC. Because Wilmington is right in the middle of it all, our city boasts excellent connections to the region as well as to national and international destinations from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), Wilmington Airport (ILG), Amtrak / SEPTA Wilmington Station (WIL), I-95, and I-495.

More than half of all Fortune 500 companies call Wilmington their corporate home. As the corporate, financial, and governmental hub of the state and region, our city offers dynamic and walkable environments for more than 40,000 workers. We have among the most promising startups and growth-stage companies in the state and some of the most celebrated new economy training programs anywhere.

Downtown has a growing supply of new construction mixed-use buildings and beautiful, historic structures brought back to life with new uses for a new age. The Riverfront, a new district forged from a former shipyard and industry hub, is one of the city’s hottest destinations with its dynamic live-work-play environment.

From the large businesses that anchor our employment hubs to the local businesses that form the cornerstones of our communities and everything between, this page serves as the central resource for your needs.
