National advisors continue to tout GLOBIEs as the key component for sustainable economic recovery.
Reported by Jason Gertzen in the Kansas City Star in a story headlined Innovation “will be the path to revive our economy”, national political advisor David Wilhelm says that nurturing innovative companies with the potential for substantial and rapid growth very well could be one of the most effective strategies for rebuilding tattered regional economies.
“Those of us who are business builders are about to be brought front and center in a national debate over what constitutes honest capitalism, how to best promote genuine entrepreneurship, how to reconnect hard work, achievement and accountability in this great country of ours.”
Wilhelm has advised political campaigns for President Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley. More recently, Wilhelm advised President Barack Obama on innovation and entrepreneurship for economic development.
