Local Leaders Showcasing Wilmington To Attract Millenials

It’s our time. Today, Friday, September 28th wilm.love will be launching with a huge block party! While the initiative showcases what makes Wilmington and our residents so wonderful, business and civic leaders are also looking to attract people from Philadelphia, Baltimore, and around the country to our city- it is a win-win for spurring growth in Wilmington and the surrounding cities. 

 

Summarized from the article Hey Baltimore millennials: Wilmington, Delaware wants you from The Baltimore Sun.

 

Business and civic leaders understand that people might not be familiar with the city, so they’re launching a campaign Friday to attract people from here up there, for a job at the chemical conglomerate DuPont or to live in an urban loft along the revitalized riverfront.

 

“Nothing against Baltimore; we have very good friends there and it’s a wonderful city,” said Jim Stewart, a longtime Wilmington businessman who is chairing the new effort. “But I’ll make the case for Wilmington. It’s something of a hidden jewel.”

 

Given Delaware’s pro-business legal and financial structure, Wilmington has become home to Fortune 500 headquarters, including DuPont, Chemours and Navient. Also in the plus column, according to the campaign, is its proximity to Philadelphia.
