MARIN – Fostering the growth of business and retention of current businesses in Marin County is the focal point of the Marin Economic Forum.
The forum is a public-private partnership working to “enhance Marin’s economic vitality and to create an environment that supports startup, expanding and entrepreneurial businesses within Marin’s economic sustainability strategy.”

“We are trying to both help businesses stay here and to connect entrepreneurs to capital,” said Dr. Robert Eyler, interim chief executive officer of the forum, chair of the Economics Department at Sonoma State University and the director of the Center for Regional Economic Analysis, also at Sonoma State.
Dr. Eyler said the industries most likely to provide strength in the future are real estate and finance, software development for gaming and entertainment, alternative and residential health care, agro-tourism, and core technology.
