“Historically, transitional economic periods spark an increase in innovation and this bodes well for regions like the Tri-Valley” says Rich Hoyt, Co-Chair of ITV’s Business Innovation Committee and Senior Managing Director of Tenant Representation for Newmark. Some of the of the biggest Tri-Valley real estate deals in 2022 included Unchained Labs long-term lease of the former Shaklee campus, Stanford Health Care Tri-Valley’s purchase of Hacienda Lakes and Tarlton’s purchase of Britannia Business Center. These recent transactions reflect the strength of the Tri-Valley and the companies’ commitment to growing their presence in the region.”

Early in 2023, one of the most influential tech events in the world, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), honored two Tri- Valley-based companies; RadiusXR, the start-up creator of a ground-breaking AR/VR vision diagnostics and patient engagement platform (following the same team’s success at IrisVision), and publicly traded Movano, who unveiled their new smart ring for women.

“With profound advancements to human health coming from major hospital providers as well as our two national research labs and our growing innovation sector, the Tri-Valley is transforming the way we will all experience health care for decades to come,” says ITV Board Chair Rick Shumway, President and CEO of Stanford Health Care Tri-Valley. A list of Tri-Valley organizations making groundbreaking contributions to the fields of health care, biology and medicine will be released at the event as an ITV Innovation Index.
