Massachusetts:Top Ranked Knowledge Economy Leader.

Massachusetts and Delaware stand out as the top performers in the ‘New Economy’ among US states according to L'atelier.  They, and the other leading Knowledge Economy states, boast several major universities and business-friendly corporation law, and invest heavily in R&D and innovation.
Massachusetts, the top-ranked state, “boasts a concentration of software, hardware, and biotech firms supported by world-class universities such as MIT and Harvard.” Second-place Delaware is perhaps the “most globalised of states,” with business-friendly corporation law that attracts both domestic and foreign companies.
