Long Island’s Economy

Our economy has the potential to be transformed to be an innovation powerhouse, but will we do it?


Long Island has the necessary assets, which if properly managed, could redefine the region into a major economic and innovation powerhouse. The region, after all, is home to some of the nation’s finest research facilities and universities.

Long Island has the potential to become an innovation powerhouse, comparable to places like Silicon Valley, Research Triangle and San Diego — but only if we use our assets wisely.
