Knight Report Highlights Fund for Our Economic Future, Lessons Learned

AKRON, OH--Nov. 19, 2013-- A new report issued with the Knight Foundation highlights key lessons that can help civic leaders from across the country to transform their regional economies.

The report, "Catalyzing Regional Economic Transformation: Lessons From Funder Collaboration in Northeast Ohio," highlights the experiences of the Fund for Our Economic Future, launched in 2004 by a group of philanthropic organizations to turn around the hard-hit economy of Northeast Ohio.

The Fusion of Inclusion; Expanding Minorities' Technology-Sector Presence is Critical to Fueling Northeast Ohio's Competitive Drive

This report is an attempt to quantify what is anecdotally observed: Few African-Americans and Latinos are participating – let alone creating new businesses and jobs for others – in Northeast Ohio’s technology sectors. This report attempts to understand the reasons and consequences for this disparity and craft strategies for connecting more minorities to the innovation economy.

Driving the Recovery Home

The report, Driving the Recovery Home, is the sixth edition of the Dashboard of Economic Indicators (since renamed What Matters to Metros), which measured the region’s economic performance in the context of a slow-growth, fragile, post-recession economy.
