Interesting article with Washington state not far behind. Then the numbers drop quite a bit for other states.

While west and east coasts did best overall, southern states tended to come in last with the exception of TX and NC. “What is most important is the construction and catalyzation of super vibrant advanced industry sectors and clusters in a state,” said Muro said. “Commercialization has not been a top priority of universities in the heartland, especially in the South.”

Fine, large states with lots of tech/stem companies meet Bloomberg's definition of "innovative". States with other types of industries that aren't as patent crazy as tech fair poorly on this made up scale of innovation.

Ok, given that perspective do you see some states demonstrating innovation in other ways not reflected in Blommberg's report? What might those be? Could it be growing there at a scale which impacts the economy?

I wish one of those Bay Area tech giants would be brave enough to put either a headquarters or large district facility in the Central Valley to try to spread the wealth around and build up a part of the state that's as poor as the Deep South. Shouldn't be such a massive disparity in an hour and a half's drive.

Perhaps so naysayers, like the poster below, can express their disbelief in facts that they don’t like. Note the word facts.

Agreed, it would definitely help some of those places mentioned in the article. There are some good schools in some of those southern states which didn't fare so well overall. That's not saying they don't conduct research nor have good potential for growth. However, without as much industry support or presence top talent tends to leave upon graduation. Big companies will recruit to places like CA, NY, MA & WA.

Regarding the Central Valley, yes, it makes sense as more Bay Area folks move to places like Sacramento for greater affordability. Even more corporate branches in those locations would be helpful along with greater telecommute opportunities.
