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.
