Town Green has definitely helped my business in many ways. Having a collaborative voice and people being able to come together, you need someone to foster that and Town Green does that for the City of New Haven.

Town Green is thinking about ways to help us grow and because they are familiar with the market, and the people, they understand how these things can help us flourish as a new studio. Every one of them are rock starts. It’s a reminder that this is why we’re in New Haven.
