Omar Boraie was recently recognized by the New Jersey State Senate as the most influential man in turning around the city of New Brunswick. He has received the title of “New Brunswick’s tenderhearted father.” The reason so many people refer to him as this is because of his work in reviving the city of New Brunswick and making it the economic powerhouse that it is today.
Sam Boraie toured the continent of Europe with a mission on his mind. That mission was to discover what made the European cities so powerful and influential. During his travels, he was able to discover four principles that would lead to a healthy and growing city. The first principle was a strong family oriented community. The second principle was a lucrative job market. The third principle was a coalition of forces that were united in a singular vision. The fourth principle was a strong middle-class.
Omar Boraie began helping the city of New Brunswick become more family oriented by working with nonprofits and churches. He allied with these organizations and offered to give them the funds that were necessary to build community if they would hosting events.
Omar Boraie then began strengthening the job market by donating commercial real estate to the city. Without a mortgage on this property, the city could become competitive when leasing out these commercial factories. He also convinced local businesses such as Johnson and Johnson to remain in the city while things turned around.
Omar Boraie made New Brunswick strong by uniting the city leaders. Once the Mayor and the President of Rutgers University and the executives of the nonprofits were able to bring a sole vision to their organizations, they immediately began to grow the city of New Brunswick. This coalition united the visions of their organizations. For more details visit Crunchbase.
Omar Boraie solidified New Brunswick’s resurrection by bringing back the middle class. He used a strategy very similar to bringing in new businesses. He knew upstart professionals wanted to lease out prestigious office space, but often they found the cost prohibitive. Omar Boraie intentionally lowered the prices on these office spaces in order to bring in the middle class. This increased the professional practice tax revenue.
