Northeast Ohio has long been behind the nation in growing new businesses, but, believe it or not, the times are changing. At 23rd among the nation's large cities, Cleveland's ahead of even New York and San Francisco in terms of supporting entrepreneurial activity. So what's going right? And what obstacles still need to be dealt with? On the Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about what it takes to attract and support growing businesses. You're invited to join us Thursday morning at nine on 90.3.


Making Change, Regional Economy/Business - Analysis and Trends, Regional Economy/Business - News


Tom Waltermire, CEO, Team NEO; Brian Tucker, publisher & editor Crain’s Cleveland Business; Scott Shane, Prof. of Economics, CWRU; Ed Burghard, Exec. Dir. Ohio Business Development Coalition
