Penn’s Northeast Needs Private Sector Leadership and Support!
Penn’s Northeast has historically relied on the economic development community and the Commonwealth to provide the primary support for the organization, with limited support from the private sector. Based on the findings of a fundraising feasibility study and the recent hiring of a new president, who has worked at highly successful multi-county regional economic development organizations that received over 50% of funding from the private sector, Penn’s Northeast seeks increase and balance out its funding from private sector.
The region is clearly looking for a unified vision for economic development, a coordinated strategy for driving job growth, and an entity to drive that strategy. The private sector can help by leading the effort to market our region and enhance business retention and attraction by funding and governing Penn’s Northeast.
