NBBJ Discusses “Boston’s Role in the Innovation and Idea Economy”

NBBJ, One Beacon Street, Suite 5200 Boston, MA, October 27, 2016

From health and tech to finance and education, creative companies drive Boston’s economy — to the extent that Bloomberg recently ranked Boston above Silicon Valley as the most innovative region in the United States.

As established organizations and startups alike relocate to the area, how can the city continue to deepen its culture of research, learning and entrepreneurship? And what barriers might prevent it from doing so?

NBBJ recently convened leaders from the development, public policy, education, health and tech industries for a discussion on Boston’s future. Together, we highlighted the power of partnership, the role of design and planning in generating ideas and the tools necessary to drive a healthy, innovative society for all.
