Innovate78 hosts first-ever virtual Innovators Dinner

As the world was forced to pivot to full-time remote and online in Q2, the Innovate78 quarterly in-person Innovators Dinners successfully transitioned to a virtual event.

Innovate78 brought together a group of local business leaders to share advice and best practices on running their companies and cities virtually. As this event took place in mid-May, there was much discussion on how we can safely and quickly reopen the economy. Utilizing Zoom breakout sessions, we were able to curate intimate conversations with local businesses and the cities along the 78 Corridor.

The consensus from the attendees was overall positive and appreciative for continuing to hold these meaningful events. Attendee feedback echoed sentiments like, “Thank you for keeping this going and keeping the spirit alive!” The businesses along the 78 Corridor may have experienced initial setbacks with the shutdown, but they are bouncing back stronger than ever.

Innovate78 supports the business ecosystem of the 78 Corridor by further elevating the region’s reputation and assisting businesses as they evolve. The partnership between Carlsbad, Escondido, Oceanside, San Marcos and Vista helps businesses prosper in place for the betterment of all who work and reside here. The multi-city partnership furthers innovation with a shared vision to boost economic prosperity.
