Davis is home to some of the most important research and development talent in the world. In the last ten years, more than 60 tech startups using UC Davis technology were initiated – 14 of those in 2013 alone.
Where can these companies establish themselves and grow? How can the Davis community retain these technologies, and capture the economic benefits and opportunities that accompany this wave of innovation?
The City of Davis invited proposals to address these questions and consider an innovation center that would give Davis-born startups a place to stay and grow. Our team responded, and as a part of this process we are asking the residents of Davis to help us envision a world-class innovation hub that serves to retain intellectual talent, creates high paying jobs, generates significant potential revenues for the City of Davis, and offers engaging community spaces that enhance the unique qualities and culture of Davis.
