Business Growth

Business activity in the region drives employment and creates opportunity while generating the tax revenues that enable the public sector to provide and coordinate crucial services.

The Global Positioning Strategy (GPS) for World Class Business Growth in Greater Philadelphia outlines a shared agenda for boosting entrepreneurship, fostering innovation, and strengthening global business connections in our region. The goals, strategies, and key regional indicators identified in the GPS are the culmination of a multi-year regional priority-setting and strategy development effort that has drawn upon the collective wisdom and passion of hundreds of area business, civic, philanthropic, government, and community leaders. This regional strategic framework emerged from the work of a cross-sector business growth strategy team convened in 2012 by the Economy League and the CEO Council for Growth.
