Based on criteria reflecting areas such as welcoming new business models, attracting investment and having innovation-friendly sustainable policies, the states’ overall performance was split into four categories: Innovation Champions, Innovation Leaders, Innovation Adopters and Modest Innovators. Three of Cherry Bekaert’s geographic markets were named Innovation Champions (North Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C.), while three others were categorized as Innovation Leaders (Florida, Georgia and South Carolina).
