Statewide summit series to highlight benefits of collaborative economics

By
July 20, 2011 |

As part of a statewide effort to work creatively to generate economic growth, state and local nonprofits have created an event series to highlight economic development strategies made successful through collaboration and pooled resources.

“Building Momentum with Lean Resources” is the theme of the first of three collaborative economic development summits to be launched on Thursday, July 28, in Sacramento. The summits will be hosted by California Small Business Development Centers in partnership with the California Association for Local Economic Development.

The free event will run from 8:30 a.m. to noon July 28 at the Sacramento DoubleTree Hotel, 2001 Point West Way, with check-in beginning at 8 a.m. Space is limited, registration is required.

The session includes a luncheon discussion addressing “Life After Redevelopment.” Keynote speaker Nancy Lublin, founder of Dress for Success and CEO of DoSomething.org, will speak on how economic development professionals can leverage existing creativity and pool resources by taking lessons from each other. Lublin, the author of “Zilch: The Power of Zero in Business,” speaks throughout the country to entrepreneurs about how to grow businesses and organizations while spending nothing.

Representatives from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Sacramento Metro Chamber of Commerce will take part in a panel discussion on regionalized best practices to generate economic growth using minimal available resources.

The summit will be simulcast live to additional “mini-summits” all over Northern California as part of a goal to reach 1,000 economic developers across the state this summer.

“What makes this summit series so exciting is that the program will reach more than 18 communities through broadband streaming and never impact city and county travel budgets,” said California SBDC Chairwoman Kristin Johnson in a news release. “Rural and metropolitan economic developers and partners don’t typically have many opportunities to work together or share ideas and the California SBDC is proud to facilitate the interaction.”

The event was designed to showcase out-of-the-box initiatives and ideas already proven to be successful in economic recovery efforts throughout the nation.

“These events are a great way to get attendees thinking about unique solutions to addressing local issues they may be dealing with,” said Gurbax Sahota, chief operating officer for CALED. “Our expert speakers will provide tools, resources and motivation to get people collaborating.”
