Economic Development Symposium

Alex Ruggieri, of Sperry Van Ness – Ramshaw Real Estate, and Jeffrey Brown, Dean of the College of Business at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign discuss the upcoming Economic Development Symposium being held at the iHotel, October 23.

Symposium attendees will gain new perspectives on how collaborative, regional “place-making” strategies will add significant value to the existing “world class” innovation ecosystems in the UIUC region and statewide. Regional collaboration will result in more grads “choosing to live” in the area, will attract even more companies/entrepreneurs, and will deliver inclusive social and economic value to regional stakeholders from food, aviation, healthcare, manufacturing, technology, entrepreneurial, and agricultural ecosystems. Breakfast will be served.
