Programming & Events

At our core, the Fourth Economy team is an economic strategy firm and we offer Programming & Events services as part of our clients’ efforts to advance economic development. We bring our experience and expertise in economic development to bear in developing content and strategies for your programs and events.

There’s no question that networking is essential for developing business partnerships, learning about new programs or opportunities, and supporting collaboration. However, for the organizer, it’s difficult to track outcomes, and for the participant, it’s hard to know how to make the best use of time. Fourth Economy has solved these problems by developing a strategic approach to networking events. Utilizing a detailed registration process, we pre-match participants based on their unique interests and needs. During the networking event, participants report “matches” using our unique texting technology, allowing us to track outcomes for the organizer and facilitate follow-up for the participants. This format has been used successfully to promote energy cluster development in the Pittsburgh region.

Fourth Economy also takes a strategic approach to coordinating educational events. Not only can we help develop unique and relevant content, we also bring our marketing and communications expertise to all programs and events, ensuring that you reach the right audience with the right medium every time.
