Dr. Stephen Tang, President & CEO, University City Science Center, speak about the COMPETES report:
I am fortunate to have lived most of my life in the Greater Philadelphia region. Our region can serve as a case study of the steps needed to realize that goal. Greater Philadelphia's ecosystem of innovators and entrepreneurs is well positioned to support mechanisms for innovation that can be conceived, and then further developed and scaled to benefit our entire nation.
Other regions in our country could also scale innovation into jobs and prosperity in their own ways, based on their own unique strengths and assets. Just as Silicon Valley nurtures great tech companies, Greater Philadelphia is the cradle of the life sciences industry. And that's important because a thriving ecosystem must consist of more than just our great academic and medical institutions.
