About this Webinar:

On the heels of two recent announcements – NSF Colorado-Wyoming Climate Resilience Engine and the Regional Technology and Innovation Hub (Tech Hub) focused on the advancement of the quantum industry – both aiming to build two industry clusters for the State of Colorado, EDCC will dissect the significance of industry clustering, unveiling the ‘why’ behind this practice, and how every corner of Colorado stands to benefit from these initiatives.

Industry clusters are the backbone of regional economies, playing a pivotal role in driving economic growth and fostering resilience. Discover how the concentration of related industries in specific areas leads to enhanced productivity, encourages knowledge exchange, drives technological advancements, and cultivates entrepreneurial opportunities.
