Event: Accelerating Job Creation & Innovation with EDA's John Fernandez - Wednesday, Sept 15 @ NDN

On September 15, NDN and the New Policy Institute will host a discussion on new regional initiatives to accelerate economic growth, private entrepreneurship, and bottom-up job creation. Speakers will include US Assistant Secretary of Commerce and head of the Economic Development Administration John Fernandez, who will discuss his new Jobs and Innovation Partnership; Entrepreneur, investor, and Ask Jeeves founder Garrett Gruener, who will share his practical perspective on what makes new businesses succeed; and NDN Senior Fellow for Innovation and Clean Economy Dan Carol, who will discuss the New Policy Institute's new working paper, The Acceleration Agenda, which highlights low-cost ideas to go faster on job creation and the new innovation "software" we need to create the jobs of the 21st century.

Antiquated and silo'ed federal programs offering one-size fits-all economic solutions need an upgrade. This discussion will focus on the new policies and needed private sector partnerships that can drive smart, bottom-up economic development and turn global competition into regional economic opportunity for entrepreneurs, new businesses and everyday Americans.
