We believe that innovation happens best outside of isolation, that dense concentrations of private and public partnerships and accessible innovation infrastructure, like Kendall Square and Silicon Valley, catalyze speed and ingenuity. CIC and Venture Cafe weaves together major universities, large corporations, local government, venture capital firms, community organizations, and global connectors into functioning innovation districts. Our experience shows that linking powerful local partners with a community of entrepreneurs focused on positive impact, state of the art shared wet lab space, intelligently designed shared office space, public innovation halls, and weekly informal programming is the key to a thriving innovation economy. Global think tank Brookings describes CIC’s pivotal role in the transformation of Cambridge’s Kendall Square into one of the world’s leading and most iconic innovation districts in their report entitled “The Rise of Innovation Districts: A New Geography of Innovation in America.” Three of the report’s four examples are CIC cities.
