Innovate ABQ + Innovation Corridor

Innovate ABQ IREM

What is the impetus behind the Innovate ABQ project? It began with the economic shift that occurred during the Great Recession. The technology and human capital-based economy emerged, which highlights the need for a specialized workforce. Researchers found that four drivers of prosperity are inherent in cities that have capitalized on the new economy: human capital, infrastructure, quality of place, and innovation.

Innovate ABQ is a project that intends to bring those ideas together at a site meant to serve as the nucleus for an innovation district. Central Avenue and its neighborhoods serve as the perfect Petri dish for a 21st Century economy. Recent developments and announcements support this idea. Ultimately, Innovate ABQ will make Albuquerque more competitive in a global marketplace.
