At the Center of Pittsfield's Rich Innovation History

The BIC is located in the heart of the Berkshires where the legacy of innovation was born in the 19th century and continues to thrive.

The Berkshire Innovation Center will be located at the entrance to William Stanley Business Park, named after the local entrepreneur who invented the electrical transformer at the turn of the 20th century and later sold his company to General Electric.  Less than a one mile walk to downtown Pittsfield, visitors will be inspired by the views of the Berkshire hills, a walk around Silver Lake, or the New England foliage.
