Economic Development Quarterly, a highly regarded journal, has published a study co-authored by FINTEL's Boris Nenide describing an innovative industry cluster analytical methodology developed by FINTEL in cooperation with its research partner, Cambridge, MA based Advanced Research Technologies Inc.  This article examines cluster trends in California's central San Joaquin Valley and northeast Indiana through the introduction of quantitative methods that detect microchanges in cluster development. These methods capture whether a region's clusters are evolving and, if so, how they are changing. Built on the foundation of traditional quantitative cluster analysis techniques, these additional screening methods can capture entrepreneurial and innovative activity within the industry cluster context at an earlier stage than traditional methods can.
