Rochester, N.Y.
Rochester, N.Y.
Rochester, dubbed the "world's imaging capital" thanks to the presence of Kodak and Xerox, is also a hub for light and precision manufacturing. Nearly 80,000 locals work in the sector, and there are about 1,400 manufacturing businesses in the area - 90% of which have fewer than 100 employees. Small businesses benefit from easy access to the Canadian market (the border is 87 miles away), a well-educated workforce, and a strong scientific community: Rochester boasts no fewer than 24 technical schools, colleges and universities, including the world-famous Rochester Institute of Technology.
