Brains And Beauty
Hunterdon County isn’t just a beautiful place to live, its reputation for its highly educated workforce makes it a logical choice for technology startups and established companies who are looking for top talent to help them develop the technologies of tomorrow.

Bringing New Technologies Home
Hunterdon County doesn’t just wait for new technologies to be developed, we’re at the forefront of creating those technologies right here in our 26 municipalities. To underscore our commitment to innovation and technology, we’ve partnered with Flemington Community Partnership and the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce to create HackHunterdon. This annual 24-hour tech product creation competition brings the most creative and passionate technologists and innovators together to work around the clock to build groundbreaking software solutions that solve real-world problems.
The competition pulls talent from Universities like Princeton, Raritan Valley Community College, and The College of New Jersey, as well as from our growing pool of Hunterdon’s developers, technologists, and UI/UX designers. It’s an incredible way to identify and connect with innovative, entrepreneurial talent in Hunterdon, with the aim of recognizing their abilities, partnering with their efforts, and creating an opportunity for their products and ideas to thrive locally.
