nemap.gifLots of companies have mission statements. So why not the New England region as a whole?

Here's my proposed mission statement for New England, which I tried to keep simple and streamlined. I wanted to capture what we already do here — but what we can always do better.

1. Attract, educate, and retain the smartest people in the world.

2. Support them in solving important problems, developing innovative products, and building successful businesses.

3. Share what we're doing with the rest of the world.

4. Keep getting better at Items #1-#3.

Did I leave anything out? Are you signed on, or not? Post a comment...
