Beloit

A river city once forged in heavy industrial manufacturing, Beloit is reinventing itself as an entrepreneurial hub for young professionals and high-growth startup companies. With a convenient location on the Wisconsin-Illinois border, beautiful renovations to a historic downtown, and multi-million-dollar industrial redevelopments, the city is an attractive location with a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem. 

USA Today named Beloit in the “Top 15 Cities Hiring the Most People,” a fitting superlative for a city with a modernized blend of small and big business -- from Fortune 500 companies like ABC Supply Co. and Kerry, to startup & tech communities housed in our backyard through Irontek and gener8tor.

Innovation and revitalization fuel Beloit, home to the oldest college in the state of Wisconsin; a 13-year-and-counting International Film Festival identified by the New York Times as one of half a dozen alternatives to Sundance; host of the Beloit Farmers Market which boasts over 90 vendors and 5,500 attendees weekly from Spring to Fall; a growing foodie scene among its downtown streets; and free concert series in scenic Riverside Park on warm summer evenings. A perfect place to call home, and to cultivate the professional, personal, and social life of any ambitious Millennial.
