The Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) Business Growth & Development team released its GCP INGEAR™ 2020 Annual Report, which highlights the many accomplishments and success stories during an unprecedented year of challenges and uncertainty. No one could have anticipated the global impacts that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, but our region showed incredible resiliency thanks to the resourcefulness and dedication of our business community and the numerous private, public, and civic economic development system partners.
This collaborative work resulted in hundreds of businesses receiving critical supportive services and access to local, state and national resources during 2020. In addition the GCP led or collaborated on expansion and attraction projects resulting in the creation of 2,600 new jobs, retention of more than 5,200 jobs, and nearly $940 million in capital investment during the year.
We extend a special thank you to the INGEAR Committee and the GCP Program Teams for their commitment to driving our region’s economy forward. We invite you to explore our annual report and learn how GCP INGEAR continues to serve as a critical resource to businesses throughout Greater Cleveland.
