Finding the Right Business Partnership
The Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition (GWEDC) is the regional public/private partnership charged with executing the region's economic development master plan.
Founded in 2003, this broad-based coalition is led by an 11-member Steering Council comprised of two elected officials from Sedgwick County, two elected officials from the City of Wichita, a representative from the Regional Economic Area Partnership, two representatives from the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce and four business leaders elected from the private-sector Board of Investors.
Housed and staffed by the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce, the GWEDC 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 Economic Development Coalition represents a bold community-wide response to challenging times. To learn more about what the GWEDC can do for your business, please visit www.gwedc.org.
