REV The Economic Engine
The five things that make an engine run also drive an economy forward. Greater Madison is well positioned to be a world-renowned place with enviable civic, business, academic, cultural and natural amenities. We have great potential – but to compete globally requires taking a look under the hood and tuning up our region’s economic engine.
FUEL is the investment capital. It drives our economy, attracting new businesses and growing successful existing businesses in our region.
SPARK is our talent. We have strength in our creative, imaginative and innovative spirit and we must work to recruit and retain talent in greater Madison.
COMPRESSION is entrepreneurial density and industry clusters. This proximity promotes conditions and opportunities that are conducive to growth.
AIR is a healthy, welcoming business climate. It is a community vibrancy that attracts businesses, visitors, talent and keeps them here.
TIMING is capitalizing on precisely the right moment. That time is NOW.
This agenda is the blueprint that guides the Chamber’s advocacy as we work to make our region more competitive, more attractive, more innovative and more prosperous. We look forward to leading a public dialogue that will rev our economic engine and drive our region forward.
