 Southern California: A Nexus of Innovation

The CONNECT Innovation Report provides an overview of the strength and impact of the innovation economy by tracking the health of the San Diego innovation economy by comparing data year over year and quarter-to-quarter, providing a comparison across tech industry clusters of selected regions and monitoring the availability of various types of capital. This report helps policymakers and trade organizations plan and advocate effectively for San Diego’s innovation economy including availability of visas and workforce training for talent in high growth clusters, building an attractive environment for capital investment, allocation of grant funding, reform of the patent system, and zoning. The report also highlights San Diego as a world leader in innovation with world-class research, leadership and management talent.
