Downtown Rochester at an Inflection Point

March 28 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join an insightful interview with three innovative minds uniquely shaping downtown Rochester’s urban core!

Jenna Knauf, Roc Holiday Village
Galin Brooks, Partnership for Downtown Rochester
Suzanne Mayer, Hinge Neighbors

RocGrowth Candids features regional entrepreneurs and innovators who share their personal stories and describe their journey building successful organizations that have a meaningful impact upon our community.

Downtown Rochester has been experiencing a renewed vitality. It is widely accepted that a prospering metropolitan region has a thriving urban core, with successful collaboration between the public and private sectors. We face a moment when major decisions might determine whether Rochester is able to rise above mediocrity and achieve recognition as being one of America’s great mid-sized cities. That is why RocGrowth is featuring three innovators from the private sector who are pursuing superior outcomes in different ways.

Join us on Thursday, March 28, 2024 to learn more about the entrepreneur behind Roc Holiday Village, the Partnership for Downtown Rochester and the Business Improvement District, and Hinge Neighbors and their role with the Inner Loop North.

We start and finish with informal kibitzing over drinks and hors d’oeuvres from Native Eatery & Bar. In between, we will conduct an open interview led by Richard Glaser, RocGrowth’s co-founder. There will be a few surprises.

NOTE: This event will also be available via zoom.
