NEW YORK, Rochester

July 2014. $20 million accelerator pitched. 
The newspaper headline asks "COULD Innovation District Save Downtown?" Great question. 

Champions are emerging HERE

November 10, 2014: UPDATE: Here's the official website and map. Here's a newspaper article by Patrick Burke about the $5 million version of the innovation district. 

This innovation district is unique in that it states the intention of being inclusive. Recognizing that inclusiveness is a  quality that is absolutely foundational to long term success (aka sustainability) is rare among those in the economic development business. Kudos to them. 

Their educational partner is RIT
