Economic Development


“The Economic Development Partnership of Alabama is a private, non-profit organization funded by more than 60 Alabama companies that works to attract, retain and grow jobs in Alabama, while encouraging innovation through its Alabama Launchpad program, which helps early-stage companies start, stay and grow in the state.”

“The Economic Development Association of Alabama (EDAA) is a membership-based organization focused on promoting economic growth in Alabama. Economic Development professionals throughout the state, along with individuals and companies in related fields, work together with the EDAA staff and board of directors to help positively influence state legislation and industrial growth within the state.”

“The Coastal Gateway Regional Economic Development Alliance is led by a connected board of directors as a public/private partnership to increase economic development within Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Escambia, and Monroe Counties in Alabama. The Alliance is supported by city and county governments and progressive business leaders from across the region. CGEDA is a network of regional and local economic developers working as a team to enhance every community and every business in the region.”

“Rich with history and full of excitement and innovation. We in Alabama are celebrating both our past and our future. We have a geography that spans all different sorts—one of the most varied in the nation, in fact. From mountains and valleys to beaches and riverbanks, there’s a wealth of natural beauty on display when you need to get away.”
