Attracting Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs to the Capital Region

I spent some time learning about the creative way in which one organization is pooling resources to attract and keep talented young professionals in the area.  Laban Coblentz, Founder of  Tech Valley’s Center of Gravity sits down with Proctors CEO, Philip Morris to discuss the Center of Gravity project.  This creative community is a member driven club of people who’s talent is nurtured through the use of shared tools and ideas, often blending science and the arts.  As technology bleeds its way through the fabric of our region,  innovative ways to give these entrepreneurs access to resources that can support and accelerate their goals should be a priority to the entire business and arts communities because it fertilizes the growth of our own economic development. I think its called, “sustainability”… but….that’s just my humble opinion…… 😉
