On behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, we are excited to invite Amazon to locate its second headquarters in Massachusetts. As you know from your existing operations here, Massachusetts offers an innovative culture led by world-class research institutions and universities, a growing economy that succeeds because of productive collaboration between government and private industry, and an exceptional collection of development sites that meet all of Amazon’s needs for its HQ2.
Our unparalleled constellation of 125 colleges and universities is a unique resource that creates opportunity in Massachusetts. Ideas become opportunities when these engines of research and talent connect with pioneering entrepreneurs, business leaders, and science and technology companies. These institutions produce the best educated workforce in the country and have helped make Massachusetts a world leader in technology, science, and health care. We think they can make great things happen for Amazon, too.
