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.
The key support systems are in place to provide resources to entrepreneurs. Please see our entrepreneur map below for a guide. And if you’d like to dig into more regional investment and innovation jobs data, please download a recent presentation, which is available here.
