President, CEO and Founder of IT Direct Ari Santiago and President and CEO David Griggs of the MetroHartford Alliance, have an inspirational conversation about the current and future ‘story of Hartford.’  David talks about the MetroHartford Alliance’s role in telling that story, retaining current businesses, attracting new businesses, and bringing together the entire Hartford region for the benefit of us all.

Together, they discuss the economic development needs of the region and what the Alliance and the Hartford Chamber of Commerce have done and continue to do to meet those needs – before, during and after the COVID-19 crisis. The MetroHartford Alliance is both pulling together communities and marketing those communities to regions outside of Hartford to promote the region and continue our growth.

David also talks about how the manufacturing industry is set to become a big factor in their strategy to bring more interest to the region.
