Community engagement that equitably integrates private sector opportunity fund investments matter. Low-income and undeserved communities have a better opportunity for self sufficiency and resilience when innovation, learning, research and jobs are fostered by investment and business growth.
The Information Communications and Technology industry sector is in great need of skilled labor. Training/Learning content, infrastructure and delivery systems are areas of investment that returns a lifetime of benefit to all parties concerned. Particularly when relevance and employment are aligned.
Education alignment along with an applied research approach, where industry is partnered and part of the learning ecosystem, will yield investment returns and community growth.
The Council Exchange Board of Trade works toward harmonizing outcomes. Research is underway with university, government and NGO partners to mitigate moral hazard and reduce information asymmetry through governed knowledge management. Community collaboration, consensus and concessions are sourced from the value of economic equalization and faith built from the truth that we are stronger together.
On Economic Equilization
"No matter how the capital gains are derived two things are clear from an industry perspective. First there will be billions of dollars invested in opportunity funds. Second, the public sector can play an essential role in supporting economic development programs that foster innovation, collaboration which leverages private capital and creates community resilience."

"Tracking the effectiveness of the Opportunity Zones requires a clear understanding of the outcomes and goals prescribed by the enabling legislation. Each of the identified metrics shall not only require data elements, but also a process to manage the acquisition, maintenance and storage of the metrics data and metadata necessary to paint a holistic picture. Key business questions, metrics and the reporting goals necessary to meet the administrations objectives shall require a committee of the stakeholders, to establish operating baselines along with a functioning team to manage all of the overhead required for reporting."
