In this guest post for Crain's Cleveland Business, Tobin Buckner, JumpStart's Akron entrepreneurial community manager, writes about all of the resources in the Akron area that are supporting entrepreneurs, including the Fund's new fellow.
In an editorial from the Akron Beacon Journal, our Fund's job access research is referenced with the observation: "A conversation on how better to connect workers with jobs must continue and extend beyond discussions about the bus system to include ways to reverse suburban sprawl and develop new jobs in the city."
Crain's Cleveland Business has lunch with Chris Thompson, who recently went out on his own as a consultant after a decade with our Fund, to discuss his new endeavor, collaboration, and fly fishing, of course.
In The New York Times Economic Scene column, Eduardo Porter writes about the results of the national WorkAdvance demonstration, supported in Northeast Ohio by our Fund and others. The headline: The results are heartening.
