Building Prosperity in Greater Akron Forum

In Partnership with Greater Ohio

SPONSORED BY: Akron Tomorrow and Northeastern Ohio Universities Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy

The Building Prosperity in Akron Forum will frame new approaches to ensure a strong Akron future and prepare for the next economy while building upon Akron's accomplishments and major initiatives already underway. A series of discussions will focus on the interconnections between select strengths of the Greater Akron area, supporting talent and workforce development, promoting unique Greater Akron innovation clusters, and stabilizing and strengthening our urban core and neighborhoods.

The featured keynote speaker, Paul S. Grogan, President & CEO of The Boston Foundation, will talk about the importance of using clusters and how metric research can help guide future policy decisions.

The forum will also examine the importance of Akron and its metro area in contributing to the economic prosperity of the state and the link between state policy and Akron's ongoing redevelopment.
