JLL Minneapolis – St. Paul Snapshots:
Minnesota leaps five spots; now ranks as seventh top tech state
• According to Milken Institute’s State Technology and Science Index of 2016 Minnesota jumped five spots into the top ten. This move puts the state within the top ten for the first time in more than ten years.
•The index used calculates 107 indicators that rank every state’s tech and science capabilities and their success at converting these assets into companies and high-paying jobs.
•Minnesota has taken on the nickname ‘Medical Alley’ from the large number of Fortune 500 medical tech companies that call it home. This yields an environment suitable for new start-ups and venture capital investment, both of which have been putting up strong numbers nationally over the last decade.
