Inland SoCal Link iHub
What is the Inland SoCal Link iHub?
In the Spring of 2010, the State of California launched its new, forward-thinking innovation Hub (iHub) program in an effort to harness and enhance California's innovative spirit. The iHubs leverage assets such as research parks, technology incubators, universities and federal laboratories to provide an innovation platform for start up companies, economic development organizations, business groups and venture capitalists. The iHub will promote economic development and innovation based opportunities in the Inland SoCal Link Corridor.
The Port of Los Angeles has joined with the County of Riverside and the County of San Bernardino to cooperatively promote economic development and attract foreign direct investment for job creation and retention. The purpose of the Inland SoCal Link iHub is to maximize the opportunities within the transportation and distribution corridor linking the Los Angeles port gateway with the Inland Southern California region.
The iHub will promote economic development and innovation based opportunities in the Inland SoCal Link corridor.
It will also boost the area's effort to create additional programs and institutions that will foster new research and knowledge centers with a focus on advanced logistics.
