Building stronger, more competitive regional industries
Collaborating with the Chester County Workforce Development Board and numerous strategic organizations, CCEDC developed and implemented five Industry Partnerships (IPs), using the Commonwealth’s Next Generation Industry Partnerships model, to serve businesses in Chester County and the region.
IPs bring together business, education, and economic development and industry associations, around the common purpose of improving the competitiveness of a cluster of companies, focusing primarily on their workforces. The IPs leverage the resources of the partnership to help address common industry challenges such as developing human capital, accessing business financing and resources, and developing innovative responses to emerging business trends and opportunities.
