The green and scenic city of Seattle, Washington is known as one of the world's most inventive cities, according to Forbes.
With a total population of about two million people, Seattle is the second largest city in the Pacific Northwest and it is fast-growing.
Forbes' ranking is based on a metric known as "patent intensity"- also known as the ratio of patent applications to the total population. The patent data show 4.25 patent applications for every 10,000 residents in the greater Seattle area. All in all, this shows Seattle as the 13th highest patent intensity in the world.
