“Technological innovation is key to the State's success,” said New Jersey Governor Corzine at NJIT today. Corzine outlined his economic growth strategy for New Jersey before a capacity audience in the Campus Center Atrium that included leading members of the Governor's cabinet and senior staff, Newark Mayor Cory Booker, State legislators, corporate CEO's, chamber of commerce and trade organization executives, labor union leaders, and college and university presidents, in addition to many NJIT faculty, students, and staff who also attended. Prior to his announcement, the governor toured NJIT's Enterprise Development Center, New Jersey's oldest and largest business incubator facility. Corzine, who recently named NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch to serve on his Economic Growth Council, said that his strategy will help to attract new capital investment in a highly competitive global marketplace and promote the state as a place in which to locate and grow successful high-tech businesses and attract federal research dollars. “It is time to make sure we're pushing for long-term job growth,” Corzine said. “We have a great future ahead of us.” >>
