Baker Administration Backs Innovation Districts
Innovation districts are all the rage as cities, both large and small, try to lure entrepreneurs and start- up companies. Holyoke, Massachusetts has built its innovation district around the Green High Performance Computing Center. Popular Mechanics magazine recently ranked Holyoke as one of the top cities in the country for start-ups. The Baker administration’s Housing and Economic Development Secretary Jay Ash attended the Holyoke Innovation District’s 3rd annual meeting this week.
