Founded in 1995, the Economic Partnership is a coalition of business, education and public sector leaders dedicated to promoting economic vitality and an excellent quality of life in the East Bay region. The Partnership works collaboratively to support and expand existing businesses, and to attract high-wage, high-skill jobs and emerging technology companies to the region.
Planning for Progress
The Partnership's vision includes implementing a comprehensive, long-term economic strategy to create a welcoming and innovative business environment to foster development of new industry and accelerate the growth of existing businesses.
Industries we are targeting include
- conventional and advanced manufacturing
- conventional and alternative energy
- health care and life sciences
- digital media
- food processing and agribusiness
- professional, scientific and technical services
Facing the Challenge
The Partnership depends on the active collaboration and support of all who are concerned about our economic future. We believe that economic regions are defined not by political boundaries but by connectivity through industry concentrations, common labor markets and supporting infrastructure. A concentration of intellectual capital drives our economic growth. The East Bay region is a place where these elements combine to fuel a regional innovation cluster unrivaled in its potential and vitality.
We welcome all inquiries, and invite corporate, business and organizational membership in our coalition. We urge you to contact us if you wish to participate or learn more about our work.
