Innovation in the United States

Inc. Magazine recently published a great visual and interactive representation of where innovation takes place in the U.S. based on a report from The Information Technology & Innovation Foundation.

Massachusetts tops the list (and the accompanying article quotes Colin Angle of iRobot, the keynote speaker at Young Inventors' last conference).

Pennsylvania (my new home state) ranks 21st.

I was particularly interested in the large number of metrics employed by the study.

In terms of promoting entrepreneurship and innovation, the article cites Maine as a particularly successful state. Angus King, the governor of the state, attributes the state"s success to start-ups.

The entire report is available from the Kauffman Foundation here.
