2019 TECH BETWEEN THE COASTS REPORT
In 2018, the Between the Coasts (BTC) region received more attention in conversations about venture than at any point in recent memory. Given the frenzy surrounding monster fundraising rounds and valuations on the coasts (and the emerging sense of jadedness with Silicon Valley culture), it’s not a surprise that many folks have begun looking to new ecosystems for a fresh perspective. We at Lewis & Clark welcome the increased attention to our region’s strong fundamentals: our world-class research institutions, abundance of STEM graduates, bulk of the Fortune 500, and good old-fashioned grit.
But while we are extremely bullish on the BTC venture opportunity — investing here is what we do, after all — we also recognize that a sober examination of the strengths and weaknesses of the BTC region is necessary to empower sustainable innovation. With that in mind, we’re proud to present our third Tech Between the Coasts Report.
