During this strategy workshop, we will form new collaborations among workshop participants and learn by doing.

By working together, participants not only push the project forward, but form working relationships with people with similar interests. Short, focused project meetings will take place regularly following Trenton Business Week to move the project along. It is our goal with the Trenton Business Innovation Project to deliver tangible results as we advance business and economic development in the region.
