Prince George's 4.0 Brings Together a New Generation of Leaders in Prince George's County

Capitol Heights, MD - Last night, a new generation of leaders in Prince George's County had the opportunity to show exactly what they are made of at the launch of "Prince George's 4.0". Hosted by the Prince George's County Social Innovation Fund (the group that brought us 'Forty Under 40') and the Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation, "Prince George's 4.0" is an opportunity designed to connect top millennials, future leaders and entrepreneurs who represent the vibrant and diverse business community of Prince George's County to the Economic Development Corporation and the unique programs and resources it has to enhance business development.

"Prince George's 4.0" was sponsored by Berman Enterprises, a multi-generational real estate and holding company that is currently redeveloping Bowie Marketplace with the County's second Harris Teeter; and by NAI Michael, a leading commercial real estate company in the County that is currently developing Ritchie Station and bringing the first Dave & Buster's to Prince George's County. Each company was represented by their under 40 executive leaders who expressed their excitement about doing business in Prince George's County.

"It's a great time to be in Prince George's County" said Jeff Berman, Principal of Berman Enterprises. "We are very pleased with the cooperation we have received from the Baker Administration and the Economic Development Corporation. They have made it a pleasure to do business in Prince George's County again." More than 100 people attended this exciting networking event which was graciously provided by the Pohanka Automotive Group at their corporate headquarters, Pohanka Honda located at 1772 Ritchie Station Court, Capitol Heights, Maryland. Guests included local business owners, state and local elected officials, as well as state and local government officials.

"There are great things happening in Prince George's County," said Jim Coleman, EDC President and CEO.
