#95 – COMMUNITY INNOVATOR – Joseph R. Russo – 2016-09-17

I sat down at Subculture Coffee with Joe Russo, Executive Director of Palm Beach Tech, to talk all about innovation and collaboration in our local area. The mission of Palm Beach Tech is to “ galvanize and grow the technology industry of Palm Beach County to become a landmark technology & innovation hub.” And, they’ve already had a multi-, multi-million dollar impact on our economy!

Joe explains why it has been his passion and mission to connect the tech community of Palm Beach while also rebranding the area as a hub for such innovation. The organization always has cool events going on with an impressive lineup of speakers and a great foundation of support for small businesses and independent thinkers, including building a collaborative space. So, if you are a local, be sure to follow, join, and get involved.

Otherwise, let Joe inspire you to reimagine your town and community! What can you to do improve your local schools, economy, crime level, reduce homelessness, etc… etc… What is most striking about Joe is his ability to think on a grander scale. I want you guys to think that way, too!!
