Trenton Makes The World Takes is a slogan that has been associated with Trenton, New Jersey, for many years. It refers to the city's historical significance as a manufacturing and industrial hub, particularly during the early to mid-20th century. The iconic slogan is prominently displayed on the Lower Trenton Bridge. It reflects the idea that Trenton was a productive and industrious city, contributing goods and products that were distributed globally. The phrase carries a sense of pride in Trenton's industrial heritage and its role in manufacturing that impacted a broader audience. While Trenton's economy has evolved over the years, and the industrial landscape has changed, the slogan remains a recognizable and enduring symbol of the city's historical legacy. 

Trenton is now experiencing a renaissance driven by an emerging technology and startup ecosystem.
