"The place we choose to live affects every aspect of our being... People are not equally happy everywhere, and some places do a better job of providing a high quality of life than others."

Richard Florida, Urban Theorist, “Who’s Your City”


Grow. Attract. Prepare. These have been the guiding principles of the Center For Economic Growth (CEG) since its inception. For more than two decades, CEG has been at the forefront of economic development initiatives and public policy discussions affecting the 1.1 million residents of New York’s Capital Region and Tech Valley. As a not-for-profit membership based organization, we collaborate with our partners to both shape the future of our communities and to provide the pathways necessary to make those goals become reality. By advancing visionary policies and advocating for transformational change we strive to build upon the qualities that make the area a great place to live, work and play.
