Steve talks to us about the consequences of an up and coming neighborhood in North East DC failing to tell it's own compelling story and the impact on its economic development. Steve Moore is the president and CEO for the Washington, DC Economic Partnership (WDCEP), a non-profit organization that works to promote the business and retail potential that shapes the District of Columbia and tracks $74.5 billion in development opportunities. What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Text in the footer that states "This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED." Steve has spearheaded the launch of new programs through WDCEP like a Creative Economy Summit, the nation's largest GLBT Economic Summit; actionomics[dc], the area's largest Business Plan Competition; and a Small Business Awards program. WDCEP has also undertaken rigorous research initiatives covering the creative, green, retail and technology sectors. Before WDCEP, Steve directed the strategic planning and marketing for The Rouse Company's urban projects nationwide including Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Westlake Center, South Street Seaport, Pioneer Place, Arizona Center, and Santa Monica Place.
