Governor Christie Whitman will launch the Innovation
Garden State’s web page on Friday, October 27
The Innovation Garden State campaign is sponsored by Prosperity New
Jersey, a public-private partnership aimed at bringing technology
companies and workers to the state.
"Innovationgarden.org was designed as a resource for members of
the technology community," says Stephen R. Sasala, president and
CEO of Prosperity New Jersey, noting that companies in and outside

the resources to grow their businesses in the state.
Press releases on technology companies and a stock ticker devoted
to the state’s technology companies are provided by TechSourceNJ.com,
part of the New Jersey Technology Council. Other features include
databases for venture capital opportunities, technology jobs, and
requests for proposals, both private and public. Pages of the website
that offer customized information include one on relocation services
and an "ask the tech expert" page.
