All City & Regional Ecosystems

Plugging in to a local business ecosystem — or building a stronger one — can serve as an accelerant for innovation. It can lead to new collaborations and investments, and potentially create a stronger talent pool for all of the players in that region. Our coverage of city and regional ecosystems focuses on how companies engage, with a focus on creating value for all parties involved. We also occasionally map the key players in a particular innovation ecosystem, like Silicon Valley, New York, or Boston.

A few good places to start: our lists of the top cities for innovation in North America, and the top cities for innovation globally, as well as our research reports on startup engagement and ecosystem development.
