Episode 6

In this month’s Example of Awesome, we highlight the resilience of Pulaski, where a group of local investors bought vacant buildings in hopes of revitalizing the downtown area. ¬†Our faculty interview comes from Reed Kennedy of the Pamplin College of Business, whose students drew up business plans for one Pulaski entrepreneur, and we ask three questions of mayor Todd Worrell.

Also in episode six, St. Paul mayor Kyle Fletcher talks about job creation in his town, revealing how an empty 285,000-square-foot building landed a new company. Meanwhile, Bob Stripling, a professor in the Center for Public Administration and Policy at Virginia Tech, suggests that offering incentives can entice companies to create jobs in your community.
