Recently we expanded our search for IP-based startups beyond the Sacramento region into the entire Blue Tech Valley region from Kern County to the Oregon Border, and over to the Central and Far North Coasts.    We have now published a map of all these companies so you can get an idea of this cluster.  The largest category as expected remains energy efficiency with 35 companies.  The number of storage companies grew the most in percentage terms.  And in this map we also included many more water management and water efficiency companies.  We are making a new push in 2021 to find even more companies and update this map.  Take a look.  It is quite amazing.  

Make sure you keep up with us on Social Media
