Where Does Your State Rank in the Innovation Economy?

At the Next Economy Partnership Project, we're advocates of building an economy fueld by locally led innovation.

However, when it comes to transitioning into the next economy, some states are further along than others.

A fantastic new report by our friends at the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation ranks states by their adoption of an innovation fueled economy.

Not surprisingly, states with robust innovation economies like Massachusetts, California and Virginia rank in the top ten.

States that rank lower on ITIF's scale represent economies that lack some of the infrastructure needed for innovation. By adopting a regional innovation strategy, these states might help accelerate the innovation economy - and acquire the jobs associated with it.
