Finding the Right Business Partnership

The Greater Wichita Partnership is the regional public/private partnership charged with executing the region's economic development master plan.

Founded in 2003, the Greater Wichita Partnership is focused on expanding Greater Wichita's commercial & industrial base through aggressive business retention, expansion and recruitment activities. Assistance with available buildings or parcels of industrial land, custom economic research, state and local financing incentives and Îone-stop' advocacy are available - both to our existing industries seeking to expand or become more competitive, or to outside companies exploring relocation opportunities.

The Greater Wichita Partnership represents a bold community-wide response to challenging times. To learn more about what the Great Wichita Partnership can do for your business, please visit www.gwedc.org.
