Investing in the Greater Richmond Partnership (GRP) ensures that Greater Richmond remains globally competitive so businesses will continue to be attracted to our great region.

GRP is a a 501(c)3 non-profit regional economic development organization for the City of Richmond and the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover, and Henrico. We are funded by these government partners as well as ~100 private sector businesses.

Regional economic development lifts every segment of the area’s economy, providing business opportunities for firms large and small, new and established.

When a new company locates in the region, they hire Richmonders for newly created jobs and recruit new talent to the area. New companies also select a property to lease or purchase – immediately impacting real estate brokers, bankers, lawyers and construction workers.

Employees are then able to purchase cars and houses and spend their new income on restaurants, retail, healthcare and more. This work affects the economic prosperity of our surrounding community, our region’s quality of life and talent recruitment.

“The nation’s economic landscape has changed dramatically in the last ten years, but during that time, one thing has remained constant: the importance of a regional economic development organization spearheading the business attraction efforts of Greater Richmond. The public sector can’t do it alone, and neither can the private sector. That’s why it’s so important to fund the Greater Richmond Partnership and its vision.”
– Bobby Ukrop, Chairman & CEO, Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods

“The end game of economic development is a vibrant community full of opportunity. The Greater Richmond Partnership and its partner localities take great care in the effort of analyzing data, finding the region’s best attributes, and marketing those findings to clients. It’s been amazing what companies GRP has been able to attract to the region for nearly 30 years.”
– Dr. Chris Chmura, Founder & CEO, Chmura Economics & Analytics
