U.S. Chamber, 1776 to Host Press Call, Release 2017 Innovation That Matters Report on Startup Communities

Report Ranks 25 U.S. Startup Hubs, Provides Recommendations to Cities for Continued Innovation


WASHINGTON, D.C. - October 11, 2017 ( Newswire) The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Free Enterprise, C_TEC, and 1776, will host a press conference call to release findings from their latest Innovation That Matters report, a data-rich study outlining which American cities are positioned to capitalize on the rise of the “next-wave” digital economy.

The report ranks 25 U.S. cities using key statistics to show how well they are turning capital into successful tech industries, with a focus on next-wave startups. The 2017 Innovation That Matters report highlights two additional cities, not included in the rankings, with growing startup industries.

Across the industry, the share of next-wave startups—sectors spanning health, energy, education, and smart cities—continues to grow significantly. In these 25 cities, nearly half of all startup investment is flowing into next-wave companies; between 2012 and 2016, these investments topped $100 billion.
