This is where innovation is happening in Delaware

Take a look at Delaware Innovation Mapped and Wilmington Innovation Mapped.

There are those who choose to mock the size of Delaware and its oft-touted “First State” slogan, and we’d encourage those who lack the capacity to adopt a holistic view of the state’s innovation economy to take a look the bigger picture.
No, really — we have two big pictures mapping where innovation is happening in Delaware.
Let’s call this a moment of clarity for the visual learners and skeptics, and a boost of confidence for the ever-knowing faithful. Check out Delaware Innovation Mapped, which traces clusters of innovation up and down the state, and Wilmington Innovation Mapped outlining the city’s Innovation Corridor.
We’ve already spotted a few slightly-off quirks, so give us a heads up in the comments if you pick up on errors (we’re not master cartographers, we’re journalists). Otherwise, you can find Delaware Innovation Mapped in any of the sleek new Delaware Innovation Week print mags, available at these locations and at any of the over two dozen events happening Nov. 13-21. If anything, make sure catch us at our #DIW15 closing party Innovation Celebration at the Hercules building in Wilmington on Nov. 20.
Dela where? Dela here. Good things really do come in small packages.
