A note from the editor Oct. 28

Alx Stevens//October 28, 2022


I’ve heard a lot of forward thinking this week, across a number of industries and business-related sectors. 

Health care professionals are open to working with entrepreneurs to innovate health care practices. 

Post-secondary and collegiate institutions are eager to connect with industry partners. 

Energy stakeholders are excited about new technologies but unsure of how they will be implemented. 

And that’s just scratching the surface. It’s no secret that these industries have each faced their own unique challenges while sharing in others, but after this past week, I have reason to be optimistic, and others do as well. 

This week hosted Boise Entrepreneur Week, a five-day event where startup founders, industry leaders and many others come together around innovation, to collaborate and more. I’m looking forward to sharing insights gleaned, and I’m sure this will not be one-and-done coverage.  

Also looking ahead, our Top Projects event took place on Oct. 27, so look for that upcoming coverage where we announce the Top Project of the Year, Specialty Contractor of the Year and some special recognition garnered live at the awards event.  

While on the topic of construction, we focused some of our coverage on that area this week, with Catie Clark’s comprehensive reporting on AZEK’s opening, and you can look forward to more construction news in our next edition, Nov. 11. Health care was also in focus this week, with a piece from freelancer Sharon Fisher on GPS technology supporting EMS responses, and, along similar lines, Saltzer is starting its own medical transport service; finance will also be focused on in our next edition.  

The above of course is just a glimpse at what has been happening and what’s to come, so when you’re ready for more, we’ve got you covered.
