This year’s Economic Summit, hosted by the Boulder Economic Council, examines how recent events have shaped, and continue to shape our economy. Our local businesses are built upon a long history of entrepreneurship, large investments, collaborative environments and a vibrant arts and cultural community. Further, the many industry clusters, large and small businesses and a strong research and development footprint have given rise to a high degree of economic resilience. However, the new hybrid workplace economy has challenged traditional workforce recruitment and retention strategies, real estate models and financing sources. Alternatively, opportunities in certain industries such as bioscience and cleantech have arisen as future stars. Join us for the annual Economic Summit convening business and community leaders as we discuss Our Evolving Economy.
