Recap: Discussing Innovation and Job Creation

Thanks to all who attended our great discussion with Nish Acharya, Director of the Economic Development Agency’s Department of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

Mr. Acharya’s remarks touched on the wide range of issues associated with innovation with a specific emphasis on what the Obama administration has done to help enhance innovation ecosystems around America. Mr. Acharya spoke at length about EDA’s groundbreaking I6 Challenge, what has grown out of that process, and how accelerating regional economies is critical for entrepreneurs across the country.

We appreciate Mr. Acharya’s time and encourage all to learn more about the interesting and underpublicized I6 challenge here.
