We hear it from politicians, the media, and just about everyone else: “We need more good jobs!” And, yet, nobody is telling us how to create good jobs.
After successfully starting and growing a multibillion dollar company in Silicon Valley, Martin Babinec returned to his home in Upstate New York where he then realized there were a number of forces at play in Silicon Valley—forces he hadn’t appreciated—that had helped him succeed as an entrepreneur.
Since then, he’s been on a journey to understand the importance of community dynamics in the creation of new businesses. He’s found a growing divergence between magnet cities—brimming with talent and new businesses—and talent exporting cities—where bright young minds leave in search of better opportunities.
More Good Jobs is the playbook for turning your community into a magnet city, helping local entrepreneurs to start and grow companies and, in doing so, creating more good jobs for everyone in our communities.
