Innovation America Cover Image

This publication is a guide for business on how to work with state leaders to support and promote innovation at the regional and state levels. The 2007 Chairwoman of the National Governors' Association, Janet Napolitano (then Governor of Arizona), spent the year working with other Governors to help them understand how they can implement policies and programs that will foster innovation in their states. Since her Chairmanship ended, she has continued her work through the Innovation America Foundation. The report includes a 10 point list for business engagement in innovation and specific examples of how different states have implemented innovation initiatives.
