What opportunities will shape Greater Baltimore’s next economy? How can we work together to attract new investment and expand opportunity for all residents of the region? These questions are the heart of the four-part series Redefining Capital sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and a host of public and private partners.

Please join us for the final session of this 2012 series, Redefining Economic Assets: Anchor Institutions as Engines of Growth, Thursday, November 8.

This session will focus on the power of anchor institutions to leverage their financial, intellectual and human resources to improve the quality of life in their nearby neighborhoods. Anchor institutions can be education, health, faith, financial or government institutions, businesses or commercial centers.
We will look at anchor investment strategies from around the U.S., but we will focus on an array of investment planned or already underway in Baltimore. The goal of this meeting is to explore ways these Baltimore initiatives can be supported, strengthened and given the best possible chance of success. A report commissioned by The Johns Hopkins University on investment in the Homewood communities will be presented at this event.



Nonprofit organizations, community development professionals, financial institutions, CDFIs, intermediaries, educators, foundations, and local leaders in government, business and the Greater Baltimore community should plan to attend.
