In September 2010, the EDWC launched it’s first-ever 3-year strategy that was designed to fuel the growth of business and industries and lead to an enhanced quality of life for Washington County families. The core of our strategy is captured below.
EDWC is recognized as an entrepreneurial leader in crafting and implementing "high-road" economic development strategies centered on inclusive, adaptive, and system-driven approaches for cultivating a more resilient and diverse local economy.
EDWC fuels growth businesses and industries for the creation of quality jobs and wealth.
EDWC advances its mission guided by these core values:
Brand Essence: Energetic, professional and knowledgeable business partner passionately focused on success
Position: Responsive, supportive team brokering solutions
Target: Private and public decision-makers seeking the intelligence, funds and network tools necessary to grow business
The new strategy was broken down into three phases: Economic Gardening/Deepening the Toolbox, Driver Industry Business Attraction, and Talent Pipeline.
