Regional knowledge ecosystems are where its at.
“Regional knowledge ecosystems will emerge as a new strategic frame, providing scale, efficiency and global platforms for economic development.”– 2009 study published by the Research Triangle Park and The Institute For the Future.
This is what got us thinking about the future of economic development. The model is changing. People and ideas are starting to gravitate to areas where there is a vibrant energy and common spirit. New economy workers are increasingly mobile. Cities with appealing culture show the strongest economic vitality in developing business and attracting workforce. Most of the attributes common to places like Austin, Boulder and the Research Triangle exist in our area, but we have not developed our culture nor our reputation to its fullest potential.
Ours is the first of its kind.
We’ve toured coworking facilities across the country to help create the best facility for this area. With the help of partners from around the region, we are creating something special. This is the first coworking space in the nation operated by an economic development group. What does that mean to you? It means having the support and structure of a team committed to the success of the space, the advancement of this region, and the growth of your company. Our profit is the growth and strength of our region. The bottom line is you.
