Innovation District

In March of 2017, the Stamford Partnership led an initiative to create an innovation district in Stamford. The purpose of the district, adopted by the Stamford Board of Representatives is:

An innovation district is an economic development tool that utilizes partnerships with higher education institutions, businesses, and government to fuel job growth and redevelopment in targeted locations, based on the premise that collaboration and productivity result from proximity, and therefore job creation and innovation can be fostered through the intentional clustering of businesses, institutions, ideas and people. This designation can be used for the purposes of planning, fundraising, and marketing – and potentially for innovative pilot projects and district systems.
