Approaches to Broadband-Based Economic Development #MNBroadband Conference

Broadband is essential to a thriving community – but it is not a panacea and it won’t work in a vacuum. Like a treadmill in the basement, broadband is only helpful when you use it. In this session, panelists from a variety of organizations working to support tech-based economic development strategies will discuss their own efforts, and provide the audience with ideas on how they can engage with their own providers around broadband-fueled economic development.

Facilitated by Danna MacKenzie, MN Office of Broadband Development

  • Gary Johnson, Paul Bunyan Communications
  • Tom Lambrecht, Great River Energy
  • Richard Stuart, TenBelow
  • Brian Zelenak, Mille Lacs Energy Cooperative
