Governor’s Weekly Message: Supporting Innovation in Small Businesses

DOVER – In his weekly message, Governor Markell highlights efforts to encourage additional research, attract companies from other states, and boost the high-tech sector.

“According to Tech America, every technology job supports three jobs in other parts of the economy,” said Governor Markell. “So the states and countries that produce the research that leads to more tech jobs will have a clear advantage. By encouraging research and development at all of our companies and academic institutions, we will incentivize innovation and growth in emerging industries that are vital to our economic future and we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
