In 2017, the area was approved as a national demonstration base for mass entrepreneurship and innovation by the State Council with the completion of eight innovation incubators, one of which is located in Silicon Valley, US and two in Moscow.

The area is currently home to 48 innovation incubators, four of which are national level. Another 320 enterprises have agreed to participate in the incubation plan, with 31 enterprises already having completed incubation.
