Webinar: Creating Successful Partnerships with the Private Sector @ Webinar
Aug 21 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Join IEDC August 21st from 2:30 to 4:00 ET for this free informative webinar on creating successful relationships with the private sector. As most economic developers know, encouraging ‘close cooperation’ between the public and private sectors can be harder than it appears – particularly after a major community crisis.

Drawing on case studies of recovery from Hurricane Katrina and other recent disasters, this webinar will outline the key actions for developing trusting strategic alliances between the public and private sectors. Learn how to avoid potential pitfalls and to align strategic interests from varying parties. Whether it is a formalized public private partnership or a less formal task force, learn how to maximize funding mechanisms and to implement strategies that grow and diversify the local economic base by leveraging assets and resources of both worlds.
