Albany, New York


Albany is the capital of New York State but lies in its "upstate" region where the economy is stagnant and government is one of the top employers. As both a political and economic leader, Albany is seeking to jumpstart growth in the "Tech Valley" chain of 18 upstate counties that have a history of skilled manufacturing. The city has attracted a partnership to build the world's most powerful supercomputer at the University of Albany and helped fund a top-ranked College of NanoTech. Investments in ICT infrastructure have included the Albany FreeNet wireless network and Technology Roadmap, which connects citizens, businesses and governments to opportunities in Tech Valley.

Population: 94,000
