Innovation Heart of SoCal

California businesses spent over $1.1 million per capita on innovation – five times more spending per capita on research and development than any other state. According to CB Capital, Orange County received $816 million in venture capital investment in 2017. OC has a dedicated community that is ready to connect your ideas to mentors, investors, resources, and capital.

The Greater Los Angeles region (including Orange County) is ranked the 6th most innovative region in the world by Startup Genome. We are a leader in the country in PhD graduates and patents issued. We’re also the #4 market for venture capital investment in the country, with more invested in 2018 & 2019 than ever before.

With a solid, diverse economy to build upon, Orange County is well-positioned to continue to be an innovation and entrepreneurship center in the decade to come. As we work to adjust our economic mix to one more oriented to technologies of the future, many opportunities will be created.
