Connections: What's next for Rochester after the failed Amazon proposal?

Jan 19, 2018

Rochester did not make the cut for Amazon's HQ2. The final 20 cities were revealed on Thursday. It's a disappointment for the team that put together Rochester's proposal, but they point out that all of the finalists were large-market areas.

We discuss their bid, and the plan for economic revitalization now that the Amazon dream has died. Our guests:

  • Bob Duffy, CEO of the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce
  • Matt Hurlbutt, CEO of Greater Rochester Enterprise
  • Alex White, local activist, organizer, and small business founder
