Whereas Innovative ideas start here. For almost four hundred years, Massachusetts’ social, cultural, technological, scientific, manufacturing, and design innovators have advanced the Commonwealth’s economic prosperity and quality of life.



Whereas Massachusetts is a global leader in the innovation economy, from life sciences to robotics, from advanced manufacturing to clean energy, from education to digital technology, and everything in between.

Whereas Massachusetts is the home of hundreds of firsts and bests, from boasting the highest venture capital investment and NIH funding per capita of any place in the world, to the invention of radar, Rock Band, and Roomba.

Whereas Throughout this month, through a series of programs and events, the Commonwealth’s innovators, entrepreneurs, and creators will showcase our innovation and collaboration, and encourage new intellectual capital to the Commonwealth.  

Now, Therefore, I, Deval L. Patrick, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, do hereby June 2010, to be   Innovation Month in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts   And urge all the citizens of the Commonwealth to take cognizance of this event and participate fittingly in its observance.  

Given at the Executive Chamber in Boston, this first day of June, in the year two thousand and ten, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the two hundred and thirty-third.

                                           By His Excellency                                                                                          DevaL L.patrick
