Why Support the Greater Richmond Partnership, Inc.?
For 20 years, the Richmond Region has benefitted from the private-public investment in economic development.
Without co-operation between four communities (Chesterfield County, City of Richmond, Hanover County, and Henrico County) and more than 120 businesses, the region wouldn’t have increased its tax base by $10.7 billion. That amount of capital investment from attracted, expanded and retained businesses has helped pay for public services and infrastructure upgrades.
Believe it or not, our hometown competes worldwide for businesses looking to expand into new areas. In a 21st century model, more focus has been placed on the global economy and we’re proud that the Greater Richmond area now stands among the best. Looking ahead, our region must plan a multi-purpose strategy to build on the strong momentum achieved coming out of the Great Recession.
Regional economic development has lifted every segment of the region’s economy, providing business opportunities for firms large and small, new and established. In only three years after the Partnership’s formation, Greater Richmond was named as one of the nation’s Top 10 “Most Improved” communities in Fortune magazine’s annual “Best Cities for Business” survey.
Community development, quality of life, the arts, quality of jobs and employment opportunities all benefit from a well planned and executed economic development strategy supported by regional cooperation and collaboration.
None of the goals for the region’s economic success can be accomplished without the financial support of investors. We invite you to join businesses in Richmond Region who have already committed to support this effort.
