John Curran discusses in his latest post in BusinessWeek that if elected, Vermont's gubernatorial candidate Susan Bartlett, would establish a state Office of Innovation and Intellectual property stating that there is an inventor "behind every tree." This office would give grants and loans to inventors looking to get patents and developing business plans to market their ideas.
Looks like Susan would follow in Obama's footsteps. Opening up innovation centers in order to open up new job opportunities and producing lots of capital. What are some other states that come to mind when we think of innovation?
