In a news release, GeorgiaForward announced its fourth annual GeorgiaForward Forum will take place July 11 and 12 at the Georgia Tech Conference Center in Midtown.

GeorgiaFoward is a downtown Atlanta-based nonprofit whose mission is to engage business, government and civil society leaders to address the biggest policy challenges facing Georgia and collaborate on innovative solutions for the state’s long-term success

The event will focus on how Georgia can remain a great place to live, learn, work and play through “homegrown strategies,” said Amir Farokhi, its executive director.

“Our theme this year is Homegrown: Strengthening Georgia From Within, and we have a fantastic program planned featuring noted experts and thought-provoking keynote speakers from around the country including Parisa Khosravi, senior vice president for CNN Worldwide, Anita Brown-Graham of the Institute for Emerging Issues, Kate Sofis from SFMade and Dr. Ronnie Chatterji from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business” Farokhi said.

From people to products, music to services, what can Georgia grow well “at home?” While Georgia is integrated into and dependent upon the national and global economy, in a competitive environment in which quality of life, human capital and local production are the distinguishing markers of successful countries and states, being strong at home can be the edge that provides economic and cultural vibrancy.
