Innovation Alliance Slide Deck: U.S. Position as Leader in Innovation is Under Threat

The Innovation Alliance today released a slide deck highlighting that the U.S. position as a global leader in innovation is under threat.  In recent years, U.S. policies have made it harder for inventors and innovators to succeed here at home, while our foreign competitors have been moving to promote innovation in their countries.  For example, at the same time we are seeing fewer patents and startups in the U.S., we are seeing an explosion of patents and startup activity in China.  And in recent years, the U.S. share of global venture capital activity has fallen dramatically, while countries like China and India have seen venture capital investment surging.

A print-ready PDF version of the Innovation Alliance slide deck is available here.
