A number of leaders from New Jersey's academic and business communities will gather Friday morning at the Rutgers Business School in Newark in an effort to come up with new ways for the city to take advantage of public-private partnerships, particularly between its largest and smallest employers.

The event will be highlighted by a panel discussion entitled "Restart, sustain and grow Newark’s Economic Development," featuring the likes of PSE&G President Ralph LaRossa, Schindler Elevator Corp. President Greg Ergenbright, New Jersey Chamber of Commerce President Tom Bracken and Rutgers University’s Cornwall Center Director Roland Anglin. Michael Aron, NJTV chief political correspondent, will moderate the discussion.

Also scheduled to speak are Deputy Mayor Baye Adolfo-Wilson and Newark Community Economic Development Corp. President Otis Rolley.

“You have all of these big anchor institutions in Newark,” said Kevin Lyons, Rutgers Business School professor and event organizer. “Why aren’t they buying from the local area? The money could be very significant.”
