PhilosophyWe aim to connect individuals and small businesses creating an economy of innovation and creativity.We envision a new economic engine comprised of collaboration and community, in contrast to thesilos and stodgy dependence on the next tourism and land development boom. Our ideas are basedon the Creative Economy work of Economist Richard Florida and the (re)New(ed) Urbanism work onRetrofitting Suburbia by Ellen Dunham-Jones and June Williamson. We studied their work to discovermethods for Phoenix to live up to its nom du plume.We have the talent in this Valley to create an economy to compete with the Atlantas, Denvers,Houstons, Austins, and Dallases, we just need to work together to create it. Different environmentsneed to overlap, connect and interact in order to transform our community to be economically andenvironmentally sustainable. The community we seek to create is based on the idea of the 4 Es: 1. Equity 2. Economy 3. Environment 4. AestheticsThis new economy cannot thrive without engaging the larger business, creative, entrepreneurial,governmental, and technical communities together.We believe that innovation breeds intension. We will transform our culture into one supportive of theentrepreneurial spirit, of risk taking, of pioneering into the unknown territories as the founders of ourmunicipalities once did. This requires education, entrepreneurship and creative workspaces.
