Words of Wisdom for NJ Businesses from Our All-Star Panel

Our distinguished panel offers some tips for companies doing, or considering doing, business in the Garden State. Their recipe for success includes leading by example, understanding the environment and its challenges, taking advantage of the state’s many development programs, broadening your networking horizons and more.     


Colin Newman: Well, I would tell businesses in New Jersey to lead by example, especially when you're interacting with the government and you're trying to get policy makers to institute policies that help your business and help the business landscape in New Jersey—to show a government what you're trying to get at and work closely with them to lead by example. Audible has shown that by moving to Newark. Our headquarters is now in Newark and we've been there for about 10 years. And by being a company that means more than just what we do, we've shown by example what it's like for a company to leverage its economic way to help turn around an urban city, and we institute policies that help our employees. We have incentives to live local, incentives to go out in the community. And we work with government to encourage it to institute policies that help incentivize companies to do similar things.
