Massachusetts, home to Brightleaf Solutions, beat out California, New Jersey, and Washington as the number one innovation hub, according to a new Bloomberg survey.

Bloomberg ranked states according to their research and development intensity, productivity, high-tech density, concentration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics employment, science and engineering degree holders, and patent activity. Massachusetts beat second place California in every category except for STEM degree holders and patent activity.

While Brightleaf didn’t participate in the survey, we’re certainly proud that we’re doing our part to drive software innovation. Read about the survey.
