So What is Next Economy?

Over the past couple of years there's been a lot of chatter about a thing called Next Economy. We hear about it at events, in the paper, in meetings and even in passing, but how many of us really know what it is and what it means for our region and our generation?

Well let's find out what the Next Economy initiative is all about and how young professional can get engaged in its success. Come join us April 29th at Mulvaney's The Room Next door for small bites and no-host libations and hear from Next Economy Project Manager Christine Ault who will describe exactly what Next Economy is all about and what it means for those who live and work here.

Then, we'll engage in an exciting brainstorming session to generate ideas on how EDGE members can and should be involved in advancing the region's economic, social and cultural prosperity.

After all, we ARE the leaders of the Next Economy.

At these interactive roundtables, members get to chat with local experts to learn critical business skills. These get-togethers provide a platform for interested young professionals to discuss local hot button topics like social media, managing in the middle and public speaking. Call it the ultimate power gathering—especially since a tasty spread is included!
