"DGRI's mission is to build a great central city - with a dynamic population base - that delivers, among other things, a high quality of life and plentiful job opportunities - both of which are critical to compete for and attract the talent from around the world," says DGRI President and CEO Kristopher Larson.

Engaging the community is important in advancing the organization's initiatives, and DGRI uses Chamber membership to connect with leaders and key decision-makers. Looking forward into the summer of 2015, DGRI will present GR Forward, a new capital investment strategy to grow and sustain Grand Rapids' downtown neighborhoods. This program will design new ways to build DGRI's legacy of entrepreneurialism and innovation, expand housing and transportation, transform Grand Rapids into a more inclusive community and restore the Grand River as a completely unique urban amenity.
"If we fully seize these tremendous opportunities, we strongly believe Grand Rapids can further the ideals of diversity, creativity, civic engagement and urban ingenuity in a way that becomes an important model for city - and ultimately region-building in America," says Larson.
