An Illustrated Map Featuring Manchester’s Most Iconic and Growing Tech Industries

Amy Chhom Silicon Mill Yard Map Chhom Group

The Concept

The original map concept We gained inspiration from came from Amy Chhom of  The Chhom Group.

She created a visual in 2017 that documented the quick growth of the technology industry within the Millyard of Manchester, NH. Amy wanted to show people the progress which often goes unnoticed due to the historic nature of the Millyard.


Amy’s map was shared over 80,000 times on social media. It has since become a tool for tech companies and talent scouting organizations throughout the region.



Silicon Millyard Map 2.0

Silicon Millyard Manchester NH

We see this tool being used as an economic driver.

In addition to spreading awareness about the thriving technological industry within the Millyard, our goals include: 

  1. Supporting HR professionals who not only have to “sell” the job and their organization as a whole, but also the Manchester community. 

  2. Supporting real-estate agents who are encouraging other tech companies to relocate here.

  3. Supporting job candidates. All of the companies listed below go a career page, where you see potential job openings without having to travel into Boston!


We Are Growing This Tool To Be Used As A Universal Embedable Map

We will continuously update the map as our Millyard expands and changes within the Downtown Manchester community.


This map is being illustrated by David Hady, Illustrator and Graphic Designer at Prosper Peak.



To preserve the growth of the Silicon Millyard community, you must fit the following definition of a technology company to appear on this map:

“A type of business entity that focuses primarily on the development and manufacturing of technology, or providing technology as a service.  Many large tech companies have a reputation for spending large sums of money annually on research and development.”

If the company that you have in mind meets these requirements and is looking to become a testament to the growth and economic momentum of Manchester,  please complete the form below.
