The Assembly Science, Innovation and Technology Committee, led by Chairman Chris Tully, hosted a hearing at the New Jersey Bioscience Center earlier this week. The committee received testimony from key stakeholders—including government entities, startups, larger corporations, innovation organizations, and higher education groups—to identify successful ways to advance innovation in New Jersey. The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA), Innovation NJ, New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program (NJMEP), and Tech United are among the stakeholders who testified before the committee.
“New Jersey has unmet potential in the startup and entrepreneurial space,” said Chairman Tully (D-Bergen, Passaic). “How do we get the best minds in the country to come here and stay here in New Jersey, to invent something we’ve never seen before and to reimagine the way we do business? I look forward to leading the committee as we consider this question and build up New Jersey’s innovation ecosystem.”
