Inclusive Growth

Economic Development

CenterState CEO leverages regional assets and its networks to advance business expansion, incubation, attraction and retention in key sectors and industries where the region is strategically positioned to compete on a global scale. Business and economic development initiatives nurture these strategic business retention, expansion and attraction opportunities through a range of resources, helping bring more jobs to the Central New York community.

Community investment work spans all of CenterState CEO's economic development efforts, with a focus on bringing together critical elements of inclusive growth: people, place and business. It strives to ensure business development services benefit small, “main street” businesses and historically marginalized owners, particularly within distressed neighborhoods where empty storefronts, a lack of goods and services, and the long-term impacts of systemic disinvestment have driven cycles of decline for vulnerable residents.

This combined focus on economic development, inclusive growth, business attraction and retention, global competitiveness and community investment is designed to help businesses grow and create a platform for sustained regional success.
