City Club Luncheon of Corvallis presents: Innovation: What’s the Big Deal? November 14, 2017

November 14 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm

At the City Club of Corvallis meeting on Tuesday, November 14, three speakers will address the impacts of the strong innovative spirit on local culture and economy. The question is this: What does an innovation economy mean for Corvallis, for longtime residents and newcomers, for young families and retirees, for business owners and employees?

Addressing these questions will be three people familiar with the local economy:

  • David Youngentob, coastal venture catalyst for the Regional Accelerator and Innovation Network, RAIN
  • Karl Mundorff, director of the Oregon State University Advantage program
  • Patrick O’Connor, economist with the State of Oregon Employment Department

The discussion will be moderated by Tom Nelson, Economic Development manager for the City of Corvallis.

The event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 11:30 at the Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis at 1112 NW Circle Blvd. The event will begin at noon, and a lunch from Valley Catering will be available: $10 for members and $15 for nonmembers. To reserve lunch, send email to info@cityclubofcorvallis.org by Friday, November 10.
