Think of an area with a cluster of high-tech companies with a brilliant workforce and world-class research laboratories and universities nearby. You probably thought of California’s Silicon Valley or Massachusetts’s Route 128 corridor. It’s the objective of Einstein’s Alley (EA), a 501(c)(4) corporation located in Central New Jersey, to put the superlative collection of tech
New Jersey’s formerly booming high-tech sector has a lower profile, battered by a series of corporate contractions over the last 16 years. But there are new efforts by state officials and business leaders to help the state recapture its once-dominant share of jobs in science, engineering and technology.
The HealthCare Institute of New Jersey recently said the state’s biopharmaceutical and medical technology fields generated $24.2 billion worth of economic impact in 2011. With eye-popping figures like that, there’s no question the life sciences sector is vital to the Garden State’s economy.
SciPark, a massive 32.3 acre R&D campus designed for high tech, biomedical and pharmaceutical companies, is offering New Jersey a chance to capitalize on its storied scientific history.

As a brand and a destination, Einstein's Alley does not have quite the immediate identification of, say, Silicon Valley in California or North Carolina's Research Triangle. But it's getting there. An expanse stretching through five counties along the spine of Route 1, Einstein's Alley is at once a location, an organization and a vision. Rush
