With the unemployment rate running very low, and the creation of new businesses running very high, Metro- West is the economic engine of Massachusetts. As the home of Fortune 500 companies and world-class technology enterprises, Metro-West businesses are constantly creating services with a level of sophistication and convenience demanded by visitors and residents.
Helping supply this growing workforce are a two-year college, a four-year university, and two community colleges. The fine K-12 public schools are augmented by prominent private schools attracting students from around the nation and world.
Town centers remain the cornerstone of commerce for the 19 municipalities of MetroWest. Centuries-old downtowns literally remain the intersection of entrepreneurs and the thriving financial and professional services that make our communities work.
