A different twist on “convergence” May 30, 2006

Posted by Tom in Community, Economic Development, Innovation, Stronger Organizations, Workforce.

ED Pro, in his (her?) fantastic weblog, brings a fascinating example of alignment between workforce and economic development to light – one that doesn't necessarily involve the use of government funds. He summarizes the article links with this apt statement:

Creating stronger civic networks of all types — young professional networks, angel capital networks, entrepreneurship networks — strengthens the regional economy and creates the sense of excitement and opportunity that keeps smart people around.

The best way to address the brain drain challenge is to build more connections within a region.

You have to appreciate the innovation and ingenuity of the many community partners inattempting to fix the problems of brain drain and entrepreneurship in one fell swoop. Two very distinct elements of workforce and economic development, working together to address the challenges of a community. More power to them.
