The Renewal Series: Celebrating America's Local Innovators

March 11, 2015
Denver, CO

From north to south and east to west, Amer­ica is wit­ness­ing a surge of in­nov­a­tion. In­stead of wait­ing for Wash­ing­ton, non­profits, loc­al gov­ern­ments and busi­nesses are dis­rupt­ing the status quo and find­ing cre­at­ive new solu­tions to im­prove their com­munit­ies. These loc­al en­tre­pren­eurs are tack­ling is­sues that range from poverty to ac­cess to qual­ity edu­ca­tion to gov­ern­ment trans­par­ency and job cre­ation.

With its high qual­ity of life and job op­por­tun­it­ies in tech­no­logy, Den­ver, Col­or­ado, is a prime ex­ample of a city that is en­joy­ing the be­ne­fits that come from pro­mot­ing in­nov­a­tion.

At­lantic Me­dia, underwritten by All­state, presents “The Re­new­al Series: Cel­eb­rat­ing Amer­ica’s Loc­al In­nov­at­ors.”  On March 11th, we con­vened ex­perts for a ro­bust con­ver­sa­tion about what na­tion­al and loc­al gov­ern­ments can learn from grass­roots en­tre­pren­eurs and change makers-and how they are cre­at­ing op­por­tun­it­ies for even great­er in­nov­a­tion across the coun­try. The Den­ver sum­mit was the first of sev­er­al events that will spot­light loc­al in­nov­at­ors across the coun­try.
