A new economic development collaboration in northeast Ohio got a kick start when medical imaging giant Phillips announced a $33 million investment last week. Baiju Shah of BioEnterprise thinks that the placement of the center in Cleveland speaks volumes about the connection and collaborative efforts between research and clinical institutions within the city, the state, and the country as a whole. Wednesday morning at 9, host Dan Moulthrop will discuss why supporters say this latest economic growth effort, the Health-Tech Corridor, will be successful compared to others that have sputtered.

The development in the corridor offers opportunities for all types of organizations, and not just new businesses. SPACES, the art gallery on Superior Viaduct, recently worked with Jeff Pessler, Dick Pace, and others to use the vacant lots for a public art installation. It was so successful, we received funding from the Ohio Arts Council to launch an offshoot called SPACES at Midtown. Look for more public art on the Euclid corridor later this year and into next!
