Urban Innovation21 is a unique public-private partnership that is supporting the growth of entrepreneurship in our region's innovation economy and connecting that growth to underserved communities and the residents that live in those communities.

We believe that a successful innovation economy can drive economic growth, but lasting regional progress only happens when all communities are connected to wealth generators.
