If you’re a civic leader looking for a strategy to revitalize a neighborhood that’s struggling, you should think about craft breweries. Sam Holloway, President of CRAFTINGASTRATEGY.COM and an Associate Professor at the Pamplin School of Business will discuss his research of craft breweries, neighborhood wealth generation, and the business model of what it means to be truly ‘craft’. Holloway’s research shows that craft breweries are engines of societal wealth.

A recent article in the Portland Tribune by Peter Korn suggests these craft business models may be an answer to American society’s income inequality issues as well.

75% of ticket sales will benefit “The Pink Boots Society” a nonprofit that supports women in craft brewing.  To register for the March 30th event go to  www.cbigoregon.com/events
