    Cleveland's University Circle, "Epicenter of Innovation."

    Come here for inspiration, come here for innovation. In praise of University Circle, find out what some of the area’s leaders are saying about this community:
     
    During University Circle Inc.’s recent annual meeting, Keynote speaker Bruce Katz of the Brookings Foundation stated, “University Circle may be one of the world's first innovation districts. The District is well-positioned to continue as an innovation breeding group thanks to at least two factors: the geography of innovation is shifting back to cities, and anchor institutions are often leading it.”
     
    Grafton Nunes, President & CEO of Cleveland Institute of Art, says that University Circle provides “engagement, artistry and science all mixing together to give you the best of what a city has to offer.”  
     
    Anchor Institutions in University Circle like University Hospitals have a “commitment to innovation,” says Dr. Marco A. Costa, MD, PhD and Director of Interventional Cardiovascular Research and Innovation Centers at the hospital. “Innovation relies on the intersection of multiple disciplines and we are about engaging the community and about interacting with our ecosystem. There is no better place than in University Circle.”

    Ian Carnas, Thinkbox Manager, describes CWRU’s Thinkbox as a “Tinkerer’s playground which is free, transparent, and open to the public. The types of interactions that happen here are what spurs innovation and you can see that here more so than any other place here on earth.”
     
    Adam Nerpouni, President and CEO of BioEnterprise says, “Within ½ mile you can find everything you need to be successful. Here is an unbeatable combination of work and play.”
     
    August A. Napoli Jr., Deputy Director of Cleveland Museum of Art, “I think we are on to something here. There isn’t another place in the U.S. where there is such a concentration of high art, culture, education and healthcare; It is the Epicenter of Innovation.”
