Industry Cluster Virtual Meetings
What is an Industry Cluster?

An industry cluster is a group of major industries in the region established to promote sustainability, profitability, and provide a forum for potential collaboration, resource sharing, and innovation between companies.

Why are Industry Clusters important to your business?

  • Economic Development research has proven that strong industry clusters in a region enhance the growth opportunities for all partners involved.
  • This type of collaborative builds local resiliency and encourages growth among the industries.
  • The clusters enable businesses to work together to address similar employment and training needs in the region.
  • Through these clusters, as needs are assessed, task forces are developed to work on projects and initiatives.
