In the next installment of the Town Hall Series, special guest, Aaron Renn, will be taking a step back and discussing how the Indianapolis region can “win” and become more competitive in 2021 and beyond. Aaron is an opinion-leading urban analyst, consultant, speaker, and writer on a mission to help America’s cities and people thrive and find real success in the 21st century.
As we look forward to a post-COVID-19 world and to a future economic recovery, we consider how, despite worldwide challenges, Indianapolis has fared better than the majority of U.S. cities, largely due to its unique mix of industries. The 2021 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament provides another great example for Indianapolis to tell its story in the short term. Join economic development researcher and columnist Aaron Renn in a conversation about how Indy build on its strengths, and address its most urgent challenges, to succeed in the economic recovery.
