A strong and vibrant community that sparks fierce loyalty from entrepreneurs and investors
What makes this characteristic the most important to you?
We can't be a healthy and nimble economy without strong businesses being founded here and staying here, and capital FROM here being invested and tapped here. i.e. stopping brain drain (and creating the opposite) and not relying on only foreign direct investment that results in businesses ultimately leaving. It's crucial that people give a crap about Edmonton enough, and feel deeply rooted and connected here, so that they prioritize building, staying, and investing here.
Would you say that Edmonton already possesses this characteristic?
If yes, what organization or organizations exemplify the characteristic?
