When software developer Andrew Holden first moved to Hamilton a decade ago, software jobs and tech companies were scarce.

But that’s changed. “There are 50 software companies and lots of startups offering a chance to do things that are pretty cool,” says Mr. Holden, chief technology officer for Weever Apps Inc., a Hamilton-based mobile solutions company.

“There’s a lot of green space despite what people see when they cross the Burlington Skyway,” says David Carter, executive director of the Hamilton Innovation Factory. “Hamilton is a great place to start your life, let alone a career. You can buy a house with a yard here for the price of a bachelor apartment in Toronto. The music and restaurant scenes are really taking off as well. It’s a very hip town now.”
