Who knows the Rochester “beat” better than Ellen Rosen, business editor of the Democrat and Chronicle?

The past 17 years, she has been covering business, suburban government, transportation and family issues for Rochester’s daily newspaper. In addition to her editing duties, she “talks business” weekly on WXXI-TV’s “Need to Know” segment and is a frequent guest on WHAM-TV (Channel 13).

Rosen will be the guest speaker for Rochester Institute of Technology’s College of Business annual Alumni Breakfast Briefing. The event will be held from 7:30 to 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17, at the Louise Slaughter Building (Building 78) on the RIT campus. Parking is available on Lot J or Lot T.

For her talk, Rosen will focus on “The Rochester Economy: Current Challenges, Future Opportunities—From a Business Editor’s Perspective.”

“Sixty-one percent of American adults say they would like to start their own business, and in Rochester, small business has become big business,” Rosen says.

“When we recently named Rochester’s Top 100, the companies told us that the key to their success is innovation and entrepreneurial spirit.”

Tickets to the College of Business Alumni Breakfast Briefing are $10. For more information, visit www.cob.rit.edu/alumni or contact Donna Slavin at (585) 475-2199 or dslavin@cob.rit.edu.
