New Start New Jersey, the New Jersey-based think tank dedicated to exploring policy initiatives to improve the state's economy and quality of life, announced today that its Board of Directors has elected to conclude active operations effective December 31, 2017.

The organization, founded in 2014 by incoming First Lady Tammy Snyder Murphy and Governor-elect Philip Murphy, will keep its website accessible as a resource to inform ongoing policy dialogue in the state.

“With New Jersey set to begin an exciting new chapter, we intend to focus on advancing the progressive, innovative agenda and promising ideas that New Start New Jersey has developed during the past three years,” said Snyder Murphy, Chair and Co-Founder of New Start New Jersey. “We remain incredibly grateful to all of our partners, especially our Board, whose wisdom and experience guided the organization in such worthwhile directions.”

New Start New Jersey’s archive captures the diversity of the organization’s research and programmatic activity. Its policy reports include “Preparing for Impact: Five Ideas to Maximize the Potential of Impact Investing” and “A Policy Agenda for Strengthening New Jersey’s Middle Class: Initial Proposals Toward Security and Prosperity.” Its issue briefs explore topics ranging from venture investment to apprenticeship, and the 48 podcasts feature the commentary of leading national experts from organizations like the Pew Charitable Trusts and the Aspen Institute.

In addition to the launch event in November 2014, New Start New Jersey hosted eight symposia, including:

  • A Policy Agenda for Strengthening New Jersey’s Middle Class with the Center for American Progress in January 2015
  • New Jersey’s Advanced Industries: What They Are & Why They Matter with the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program in April 2015
  • The launch of the New Start Career Network with the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University in October 2015
