Beer across the U.S. paints a picture of the country's regional ties


William Bostwick of The Wall Street Journal recently took a road trip that allowed him to explore the differences in beer styles across the country. He realized that each geographic region has a very distinct beer style that local brewers do well.

While on his trip, Bostwick spoke with Bryant Goulding, vice president and co-founder of Rhinegeist, who says that while breweries recognize their peers, there is still competition among the brewers. Each one wants to create a beer better than the next, which is why there are so many beers that are very similar but still distinctly different.

People's Liberty draws national attention


One local experiment in philanthropy is drawing attention from groups around the country that are curious about the potential upside of spreading money through unusual channels.

Governing the States and Localities featured an article on People’s Liberty fellowships, through the Haile U.S. Bank Foundation. The fellowships allow recipients to take a year off to try to make their idea happen. Other grantees receive five-figure sums to carry out local initiatives that are innovative and achievable within a set time frame.

Plenty of people bat around good ideas for revitalizing empty storefronts or overgrown lots, said Jake Hodesh, vice president of People’s Liberty. The foundation not only gives them cash, but also helps them get set up. It’s an experiment in philanthropy that’s drawing attention from groups around the country that are curious about the potential upside of spreading money through unusual channels.

GE at The Banks benefits from corporate America leaving the suburbs for downtowns


When General Electric starts moving its top executive team from a 70-acre wooded campus in Fairfield, Conn., to downtown Boston this month, The New York Times reports that the renovated red brick warehouses that will form part of G.E.’s new headquarters won’t even have a parking lot, let alone a spot reserved for the chief executive.

The move is part of a wave of similar decisions from large corporations to move headquarters back into downtown areas, including McDonald's, Motorola and Kraft Heinz relocating to downtown Chicago from far-flung suburbs.
 
“Part of it is that cities are more attractive places to live than they were 30 years ago and are more willing to provide tax incentives, and young people want to be there,” David J. Collis, who teaches corporate strategy at Harvard Business School, tells The Times. “But the trend also represents the deconstruction and disaggregation of the traditional corporate headquarters. The executive suite might be downtown, but you could have the back office and administrative functions in Colorado, the finance guys in Switzerland and the tax team in the U.K.”

The first 175 members of G.E.’s management team will move to Boston’s Fort Point section on Aug. 22, and a total of about 800 G.E. employees will be based there eventually.

“Hundreds of other workers in back-office functions like human resources, legal and finance will be scattered among G.E.’s existing locations in Cincinnati, Norwalk, Conn., and Schenectady, N.Y.,” The Times reports.

Eric Avner and People's Liberty lauded for innovative approach to philanthropy


People's Liberty is a five-year experiment to see how philanthropy can be done differently and possibly even more effectively, CEO Eric Avner explains in an "Innovator of the Week" profile story from Urban Innovation Exchange. Avner and his team didn't want something permanent but instead devised a timeline with a sense of urgency.
 
"Building this as a separate brand from the (Haile/U.S. Bank Foundation) gives us ability to be more experimental, to have a slightly cheekier tone, a different pace, a different way of using tech and design," Avner tells UIX. "All of these things, whether storytelling or design or metrics or outreach or work culture, will ultimately make us better grant makers. It also sets the tone for how to reach people in ways that are more authentic without seeming stuffy, but do it in a different way than foundations typically operate."
 
Avner, Vice President and Senior Program Manager at the Haile Foundation, launched People's Liberty in summer 2014 and awarded its first grants later that year.

Detroit-based Urban Innovation Exchange is an initiative to advance the growing movement of people leading change in cities. Launched in 2012 as a three-year project funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, UIX now showcases catalytic talent transforming cities and neighborhoods across the U.S.

Soapbox's parent company, Issue Media Group, is a UIX national partner.

Greater Cincinnati ranked #9 among regions "where manufacturing is thriving"


Forbes Magazine says manufacturing in the U.S. has enjoyed a renaissance since 2009, gaining back 828,000 jobs since the recession. And the industrial heartland has been leading the charge, in sharp contrast to other areas of the economy.

Forbes has released its ranking of the 48 metropolitan statistical areas with at least 50,000 manufacturing positions, based on employment growth in the sector over the short-, medium- and long-term, going back to 2005, and factoring in momentum (whether growth is slowing or accelerating). Greater Cincinnati is ranked #9.

"Perhaps no sector in the U.S. economy generates more angst than manufacturing," Joel Kotkin writes in the list's introduction. "Over the past quarter century, manufacturing has hemorrhaged over 5 million jobs. The devastation of many regional economies, particularly in the Midwest, is testament to this decline. If the information sector has been the golden child of the media, manufacturing has been the offspring that we pity but can't comfortably embrace."

Yet over the period from 1997 to 2012, he continues, labor productivity growth in manufacturing is 3.3% per year, one-third higher than the rest of the economy. In addition, "a dollar of final demand for manufacturing generates $1.33 in output from other sectors of the economy, considerably higher than the multiplier for information ($0.80) and more than twice as high as such fields as retail trade ($0.66) and business services ($0.61). Other estimates place this impact far higher."

Forbes says manufacturing employment in Greater Cincinnati grew by 3.29 percent in 2015 and 11.92 percent from 2010 to 2015.

Local startup Spatial among 12 international companies in auto mobility accelerator


The mobility accelerator operated by Boulder-Color.-based Techstars recently named Cincinnati startup Spatial as one of the 12 companies in its Techstars Mobility Class of 2016. Each is building automotive mobility technologies and services that enable people and goods to move around more freely, according to the announcement posted on Techstars' website.

"The quality of teams and companies applying this year has been incredible," writes Techstars Mobility Managing Director Ted Serbinski. "We saw a world-wide response with applications from 52 countries across 6 continents. There was a 44 percent increase in mobility-focused companies. Most impressive, 50 percent of the 2016 companies include founders with diverse backgrounds."

Spatial uses data from social media platforms to describe the feel of a neighborhood on maps, a big help to people planning trips to cities or areas they aren't familiar with. The startup was part of Ocean's accelerator class earlier this year, graduating in April.

As part of the Techstars Mobility Class, Serbinski says, Spatial will participate in a Sept. 8 demo day "where we expect over 1,000 people to come see and meet these 12 startups."

Techstars has increased its investment relationship with Cintrifuse in recent years and is partnering with Cintrifuse to present its annual FounderCon in Cincinnati in October.
