Ice House on Main - Heritage Preservation in Support of Community Development

BY JOSE QUINTANA
@ VOL 10 ON FEB 28, 2017

Jose Quintana discusses AdventGX's heritage preservation model - a process that leverages a community centric mix of entrepreneurship, the arts, and science in support of the development of sustainable heritage preservation. The model is market demand driven along three sustainable development vectors: financial, social and environmental.

This conservative approach to community development uses behavioral and experimental economics to mitigate risks and lower barriers to entry when embarking on new heritage preservation initiatives, not only in underserved urban communities but also in rural settings where heritage based assets are particularly important contributors to quality of life improvements.
