Panel takes aim at kickstarting Wilmington economy

A new coalition of business leaders has a mission of boosting Wilmington's economy.

The Wilmington Business Leaders Network will aim to identify challenges and opportunities within the city's economy and ultimately come up with solutions to improve the economic and business environment.

Mark Kleinschmidt is president of the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce.

"And what we're looking for is what we're kind of calling the low hanging fruit...what are some of the things we can do now to get some positive changes happening in the short term and create some momentum and get Wilmington to be a really vibrant economy once again," says Kleinschmidt.



The network will be chaired by Paul McConnell with McConnell Johnson Real Estate and Hal Real, owner and founder of World Cafe Live.
