One of GBC's key priorities is to advance policies, programs, and investments that encourage inclusive economic development in the Baltimore region. Our Economic Opportunity initiatives will be guided by a new 10-year strategy, and together will help create a more competitive, prosperous, and equitable regional economy.
10-Year Economic Opportunity Strategy
GBC has partnered with TIP Strategies to establish a 10-year economic opportunity strategy for the Baltimore region aimed at building consensus around a vision and plan for the region’s economic future.
Greater Baltimore Regional Brand
GBC is working to establish a comprehensive narrative for our regional economy, including industry, academic, talent, and development assets. This effort entails amplifying our civic progress and collective efforts to transform long-standing issues.
The Baltimore region’s designation as a federal Tech Hub signals that the region has the assets to become a globally competitive, self-sustaining Hub in a chosen emerging technology within 10 years. Our consortium of 38 regional leaders across the private, public, higher education, and nonprofit sectors is now competing for between $40 and 70 million in federal funds to supercharge its precision medicine and predictive health sectors – use cases at the intersection of AI and biotechnology.
Investment Retention and Business Attraction
GBC is working to develop a unified and competitive regional framework for investment/talent attraction and business expansion. As part of this effort, we are actively building partnerships with local jurisdictions to collaboratively promote the region’s assets to investors.
