Washington's Innovation Strengths (2017)

Washington is routinely ranked among the top five most innovative states, recognized for the diversity of Washington's tech-driven companies and the strengths of the state's public and private research institutions. This brochure provides a breakdown of the metrics that the Tech Alliance uses to benchmark Washington against the other top tech states in the U.S.

These data points represent a snapshot of the areas and issues that the Tech Alliance focuses its work around - from building and widening Washington's talent pipeline, to supporting the increase of capital, both inflow and outflow, to broadening the exposure of the research and innovation that come out of the state's research universities and institutions, to facilitating discussion among key stakeholders on the economic effects of technology in communities and industries statewide. This brochure provides a top-level overview of issues, the metrics and the Tech Alliance's projects.
