As Glendale continues to diversify, clusters become more evident. Like companies, brands, and missions bring together new business, retail, and residents. The clustering of healthcare, financial, and creative based companies has brought in high-paying jobs and individuals who want to live in the downtown. This lifestyle of living, working, and exploring all within a walkable area is conducive to the amenities sought by technology based companies. The interconnectivity and user friendly atmosphere of Downtown Glendale is the ideal location to attract, and continue to cultivate a technology cluster.
This cluster has rapidly delivered some of the world’s most innovative and successful companies, prompting GEDC staff to investigate ways to attract tech companies to Glendale. Several companies in Glendale are already tech innovation leaders in their industries. For example Disney, Avery Dennison, and LiftOFF invest in accelerators and innovation centers to drive new technology forward.
