Forge the Future

Forge the Future

Forge The Future is a project initiated by Pennsylvania businesses to unlock the economic potential of the state’s world-class natural gas reserves, while positioning Pennsylvania as the epicenter of next-generation manufacturing.

Since Forge The Future launched in 2016, 9Rooftops has provided strategic counsel and overseen communications to advance the initiative. Key initiatives include:

  • A McKinsey & Company econometric study setting forth broad strategies for realizing the potential of the Commonwealth’s natural gas reserves
  • Development of strategic partnerships
  • “Ideas for Action”– a statewide workshop convening leaders in business, government and beyond to brainstorm how those strategies could be acted upon
  • Development of paforgethefuture.com, a source of news, information and opinion on Pennsylvania’s growing energy-enabled economy
  • Content development
  • Media relations and outreach
  • Placement of op-eds by key Forge The Future leaders
