The Queens College Business Forum was launched in the fall of 2005. Sponsored by the Queens Borough President’s Office, the Queens Chamber of Commerce, Chase, Con Edison, Farrell Fritz, and PricewaterhouseCoopers, its purpose is to serve as a catalyst within the diverse areas of Queens, bringing together the business community, local government, academia, and students to provide an opportunity for “town and gown” to interact. Influential leaders in a number of fields serve as keynote speakers at a series of breakfast lectures, touching on issues vital to the Queens business community. The forum’s theme, “Queens: A Catalyst for Success,” is reflected in the subject matter of each seminar. The goal of the forum is to foster discussions that provide insight to attendees on how local businesses are seizing opportunities and profitably adapting to changes in business and regulatory conditions.
