Businesses have options in Delaware. Companies considering moving to Delaware will find affordable labor costs, a productive and educated workforce and a state government taking a forward-thinking approach to economic development.

Delaware’s specialized Chancery Court, devoted to handling business-related matters, makes doing business easier and is part of why more than half the publicly-traded companies in the U.S. – including two-thirds of the Fortune 500 – make Delaware their corporate home.
