Davisville, 12/8/14: Creating a more entrepreneurial city

On today’s program we talk about the efforts to make Davis a more entrepreneurial city with guests Matt Yancey, new CEO of the Davis Chamber of Commerce, and Rob White, the city’s chief innovation officer. The topics include an update on the innovation park proposals (this image shows the location of the Mace Ranch project), Yancey’s goal to add 6,000 jobs to Davis by 2020, investor interest in Davis startups, the impact on housing, and what all this might mean to the average person in town.
