Building World-Class Companies in Rochester: Austin McChord and Nick Conn

RocGrowth Community

Norm Silverstein, CEO of WXXI, has been one of the most impactful and underrecognized innovators in our community. Celebrating 25 years as the leader of an organization that includes numerous TV and radio stations, along with City Newspaper and The Little Theatre, he has had a lasting and profound impact upon our community.

WXXI represents far more than Sesame Street and a place to listen to nomination hearings for Supreme Court justices. It is an essential contributor to our arts community and media source for critical issues shaping Rochester’s future.

RocGrowth’s mission is about building community for our region’s great innovators and entrepreneurs. For six years, we have featured our leading entrepreneurs in a series of open interviews, including audience participation. Learn how Norm Silverstein has built WXXI into a public broadcasting affiliate recognized nationally by its peers for excellence and innovation.

RocGrowth has adjusted to the restrictions placed on social interaction by adopting Zoom in lieu of our typical convocation. We will moderate a 30 minute interview, followed by Q&A using the chat feature.

Stay healthy…and remain six feet apart.
