Our Database & Reports
State of Innovation Report
This report provides an overview of the innovation eco-system in the Inland Empire, offering an opportunity for investors and stakeholders alike to better understand the landscape of assets, relationships, and activities that are diversifying the region’s economy and enabling it to grow more high-skilled jobs.
The directory identifies sources and engines of innovation across the Inland Empire. In addition to incubators and accelerators, select academic institutions that do not have incubators have been included due to their potential to deliver innovators with IP and early stage companies.
Good Jobs Report
In this report, we define good jobs according to earnings, provision of benefits, and weeks and hours of work. It is important to note that the notion of a ‘good job’ should be updated in future research. With better systematic data collection by government agencies (including measures of injury and turnover, for example), this definition of good jobs can evolve.
