- Industry is the best advocate for industry – no one understands our problems and you don’t get what you don’t ask for
- The solution paradigms of industry and government for economic development often don’t line up – our toolboxes and motivators are vastly different. Companies like to be financially successful, governments like to take credit for accomplishments.
- What are some examples of successful partnerships? Is there a formula? What attitude or posture should industry take? How do you build the bridges?
- How do you measure success in these relationships and know when you’ve made a difference beyond checking a box?
