Rajiv Grover to CCIM: Find Ways to Grow Memphis Business Pie
In an address to the Memphis’ Certified Commercial Investment Members on June 15,
Fogelman College of Business & Economics Dean Rajiv Grover discussed business basics
and the role of organizations in improving the business environment in Memphis. Grover
stressed organizations like the CCIM need to identify hurdles to business growth in
Memphis and then come up with ways to affect change in those areas.
Grover said the economy works through trade, consumption, population growth, creativity/innovation,
education and then progress. All six of those concepts means a diversity of ideas,
according to Grover. “If the city doesn't support the first five concepts, it cannot
make progress,” he said, challenging his audience to find ways to continue to move
the city forward in these key areas.
