Nashua 50:
A half-century of business

Video | News | Magazine

Nashua 50 is an ongoing series highlighting a half-century of business innovation and achievement in Nashua, the economic engine of New Hampshire.

The Telegraph will present stories and videos covering significant historical events that shaped the city’s business foundation, interesting businesses that people haven’t heard a lot about, and the prominent movers and shakers in the business community of today and tomorrow.

The series culminated at the end of 2012 with the publication of a magazine that accomplished three objectives:

• Recognize the top 50 business leaders from the past 50 years in Nashua,

• Unveil 20 leaders who are making a difference in the city and who will likely emerge among the next set of leaders,

• Commemorate six months of coverage of Nashua companies, events and people that define the city’s business present and future.

The ambitious, multimedia effort was initiated to recognize The Telegraph’s 50th annual Progress edition, which recognizes the top businesses in Greater Nashua.
