Our partners have access to a wealth of information and resources, as well as supportive network of business and community leaders.
But don't just take our word for it. See what our current partners have to say about their experience or read a case study to see just how we've helped companies just like yours succeed in the Gateway Region.
Benefits of Becoming A Partner
“Who do you know?”
You have your network of friends and colleagues, and so do we. That’s why, when prospective companies are considering the Gateway Region, they’ll ask us this question. And we’ll tell them which of our partners can help them right away.
We are the entry point for companies as they consider a location. They compare the Gateway Region to regions across the globe. It makes our case easier when we can pick up the phone and call our partners to get the answers that the company needs right away. If a company is visiting and could benefit from your expertise, we might even bring you along.
Grow your business.
You’ll benefit indirectly from our work. By serving companies like Rolls-Royce, Sabra, and Amazon.com, we’re doing our part to secure a steady flow of new jobs and economic activity into the region. And when we work with existing companies like Honeywell and Wood Fuel Developers, we make sure they stay here. And where do you come in? These companies or their employees are going to buy your products or services.
Our partners benefit from the knowledge we accumulate in working new and existing business projects. They have access to our industry and market research, and they’re the first to know about the latest events and company locations that move and shake our regional economy.
