Quotes

“Otherwise they think of economic development as ‘we’re going to go attract a big plant from somewhere,’ and there’s a place for that, that’s important. But that’s kind of like buying a winning lottery ticket.  What we’re talking about in this book, and in everything we do, is sort of the Money Ball play, to use a movie reference. This is the how do you get a better on base percentage with the talent that you have locally, and it’s something that sticks.” (8:10) 

 

“If we believe that this is a movement that can change lives, our defining purpose and reason for being is to empower and enable innovators and entrepreneurs.  And by virtue of that, improve their lives or quality or standard of living.  The book is a manifestation of that.  It’s intended to be a little bit inspiration, a little bit practical and tactical detail for how to do it.” (33:32)
