Steinbeck Innovation Cluster

The Steinbeck Innovation Project is building a new development model, seeded by city government and led by private industry. Salinas’ Industrial Cluster – dubbed the Steinbeck Innovation Cluster – leverages an innovative network of civic, academic, technological, corporate, and philanthropic partners to help our youth become entrepreneurs, drive innovation in our fields and factories, and bring high tech to our industrial zones.
