Robin Sternberg, CEO of Marin Economic Forum
Jon Haveman, Economist and Principal at Marin Economic Consulting
Chris Yalonis, CEO and Cofounder of VenturePad
The high cost of living in Marin County—and the Bay Area in general—is difficult for all of us who live and work here, but may be especially difficult for solopreneurs because they must divide their time between new business development and delivery of services to existing clients. This panel will look at how high are the costs of living in Marin County, examining trends in the economy, traffic, housing, employment, commuting, and how rising housing costs affect the economy, jobs, etc. This will be followed by a specific look at our burgeoning solopreneur community and what is needed for solopreneurs in Marin County to thrive in this environment. We’ll also have time to take questions from the audience.
