Last week I was very fortunate to attend a retreat of the Columbus Partnership, a group that includes over 50 CEOs from the Columbus Region. I have pages of notes from the discussions, both inspiring and challenging. We were joined by not only by our regional leaders, but also by guests from the cities of Boston, Atlanta and Minneapolis.
I am struck by the common challenges and the uncommon people that are around our community tables trying to grow our economies, address educational and social issues, and make our communities simply better.
These were some of the thoughts that recurred in my notes from the retreat:
One Columbus Update
- Big news! The Columbus Region has added more than 100,000 net new jobs since 2010. Thank you to the growing companies who’ve committed to our region, to our state and local partners, and to all One Columbus investors. The Columbus Region is experiencing the strongest decade of economic growth in its history because of you.
- Last week, the One Columbus team joined Kegler Brown in hosting a delegation from India.
- This week, our team is in China for a business development mission. Back at home, we’ll host companies considering the Columbus Region.
