ARTICLE: Commissioner on Entrepreneurship and Middle-Class Jobs Ross Baird in Forbes

Ross Baird during Commission meeting

Ross Baird, executive director of Village Capital and a Milstein Commission member, co-wrote a recent article in Forbes titled "Why Creating The Next Silicon Valley ... Is The Wrong Goal". Read it here

In the article, Baird and co-author Rob Lalka advise communities against trying to be the next Silicon Valley and encourage them instead to focus on what their community can offer entrepreneurs of all kinds. Two examples cited in the piece -- Kickboard's work on education innovation in New Orleans and Revolution's investment in start-ups nationwide -- are drawn from the work of Baird's fellow Commission members Steve Case and Jennifer Medbery.
