About CEG

Our Vision

Leading Tech Valley as one of the most prosperous and innovative ecosystems in the world.

By leveraging our regional strengths to attract new investments and by implementing sustainable programs, CEG will work to connect and enable our citizens to identify and take advantage of opportunities to grow and prepare Tech Valley.


Our focus is on innovation-driven, technology-based industries—such as the semiconductor, biotechnology, and clean energy clusters—as core industries that will help regional communities, businesses and quality of life to compete and to thrive. We advance these industries’ growth by attracting strategic investments; improving the entrepreneurial ecosystem; advocating for an education and training continuum that meets the needs of advanced manufacturers and the 21st century workforce; providing business growth services to manufacturing and technology companies; and preparing communities for economic expansion.

Our success is exhibited in the region’s success—in job growth, in a robust entrepreneurial and venture ecosystem, in significant recent and ongoing investments secured for Tech Valley, in the competitiveness of our infrastructure, and in a high quality education continuum that is generating a local workforce qualified to benefit from the expansion of the technology and innovation-based economy.

Our membership is a cross section of the 11-county region’s thought leaders in business, government, healthcare,  education and the not for profit sectors whose significant organizational and financial support demonstrates a commitment to and concern for the region, whose  success is linked to the success of the region, and who are actively and synergistically engaged in advancing regional growth. They value CEG’s representation of Tech Valley on the state, national, and global stage.

Our stakeholders and partners view us as collaborative, success-oriented, and generating results. They recognize us as the region’s aggregator and facilitator, the go-to organization for advancing regional platforms and thought leadership in shaping the region’s economic future.

Our employees are passionate about our mission and take pride in our role in the region’s success. They know that their talents and energies are recognized by the organization’s leadership and their regional knowledge and engagement have had meaningful regional impact.
