The New Leaders Council invites you to the first of a series, "The Why Behind the Weird." What makes Portland, well, Portland? Is Portland truly the place where young people go to retire? What does this mean for the future of Portland, and what can we do to capitalize on the innovation brought by entrepreneurs, adventurers, and innovators?
Our series will highlight the stereotypes of Portland, create dialogue, and cast light on the truth behind Portlandia. I Dream of the 90s - Portlandia.
The expert panel: Greg Schrock and Jason Jurjevich, of Portland State discuss their research on the economic landscape; Crispin Argento, Owner of Pino, and Bret Burmeister, Food Cart Tsar, on their perspectives and insights on the economic landscape of Portland.
This event is brought to you by the New Leaders Council and through the generous support of Steven Rosenbaum, President of Pop Art.
