The big news in Boston last week was GE's decision to move its headquarters to Boston's Innovation District. It's a big endorsement of Boston's tech scene in general and a reflection of all of the great talent here.
GE isn't relocating here because Boston offered up crazy incentives. GE is moving here because it wants to be closer to coders and innovators.
It's particularly important for Boston's cleantech community. Having GE so close will further accelerate the cluster-building effects that are already making Boston a major hub of cleantech entrepreneurship.
Hopefully, GE will become an even more active partner in vital and vibrant efforts like the Northeast Clean Energy Council, Greentown Labs and the Cleantech Open.
