A Life Sciences legacy evolved for the modern world
Delaware is proud to be home to DuPont, one of the most innovative companies in the world for over two centuries. DuPont was founded in 1802 as a gunpowder manufacturing company and has since grown into a world-renowned chemical company and ultimately into a life sciences conglomerate. Spin offs from DuPont have grown into leading global companies as well.
This reputation for being on the cutting edge of innovation in the field of life sciences also led to the state being chosen as the hub site for a new national model for biopharmaceutical innovation. This site will bring together industry, university, and government together to promote new techniques for rapid development of new pharmaceutical drugs.
In addition to this, Delaware is a leader in the field of agricultural innovation. Much of this is due to the history of the state as the nation’s leader in the broiler industry. Today, this legacy permeates through both large commercial companies and small family owned farms, of which there are over 700 in the state. All of this is supported by a close relationship with research universities and firms which help make Delaware one of the leaders in innovations in this field.
Growing start-ups to explore
Delaware is also home to several exciting start-ups in a variety of fields that have recently announced expansions. Carvertise, a company that specializes in mobile billboards, was started by two University of Delaware graduates just a few years ago. They recently announced they would be hiring 50 new employees here in the state.
