What does it take to make the Midtown Innovation Zone a Quality, Connected Place?

Beautiful streetscapes, renewable energy sources, arts & culture festivals, ethnic food restaurants, city side gardens, interesting cafes, public WiFi, public art, entrepreneurial incubators and labs humming with activity...

We'll learn the Midtown story from Nead Brand Partners , the firm who developed the initial research and branded messages for Midtown in 2003 with the MidTown Development Corp.

Fuel this week's dialogue with your ideas, questions and what-if stories building next steps and initiatives to bring the Nead Brand Partners vision to life.

Be a part of the networked hub of innovation in MidTown. Join us to create new Midtown opportunities in the arts, technology and education.


Mark Nead and Mark Zust, principals and growth partners, Nead Brand Partners
