Why Invest in the GBEDC?

The mission of the GBEDC is to foster investment and job growth in the economy thereby improving the quality of life, educational attainment, housing availability and prosperity for all in the Greater Beloit Region.

Prosperity for all is a bold goal, but as our north star it reminds us that the diverse population that lives, works and visits our Region are a part of driving our economy. It takes strong partners throughout the region to achieve our mission.

The US Economic Development Administration (EDA) defines economic development as the expansion of capacities that contribute to the advancement of society through the realization of individual, firm and community potential. They state that economic development is measured by a sustained increase in prosperity and quality of life.

We need your investment to provide strong regional leadership.
