Alignment-related partnership in North Carolina June 5, 2006Posted by Tom in Economic Development, Education, Innovation, Workforce.
It looks like North Carolina continues to advance its innovative economic growth efforts (I had to click through a couple ads to read this article, so be patient when you click the link):
The Council for Entrepreneurial Development (CED) and Contemporary Science Center (CSC) today announced a strategic partnership to align their goals of building a strong entrepreneurial culture in North Carolina.
Both organizations will leverage CSC's expertise in high school science-based education to complement CED's mission to build successful high-impact, high-growth companies in the Research Triangle and North Carolina. Recognizing these aligned objectives, CED and CSC will work closely together to foster a creative workforce for the future.
Fascinating – the alignment of a science training consortium with an entrepreneurial development organization. Note that they recognize the importance of developing a "creative workforce" toward the achievement of their goals.
