Economic development plays a vital role in building a stronger economy for all of Delaware, and ongoing statewide efforts by DPP and its partners include:
“Nothing is more transformational than the power of a job, for an individual, a family and communities. Every announcement — small, mid-sized and large — strengthens our state and impacts lives,” said Kurt Foreman, president and CEO of Delaware Prosperity Partnership. “Whether it’s supporting businesses to ensure jobs stay in Delaware or attracting new companies to create new jobs in Delaware, few careers are as gratifying as economic development.”
“Knowing that you help people get that next opportunity is very rewarding work.”
Delaware Prosperity Partnership (ChooseDelaware.com) leads Delaware’s economic development efforts to attract, grow and retain businesses; to build a stronger entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem; and to support employers in place marketing Delaware to potential employees, highlighting Delaware as a great place to work, live and play through LiveLoveDelaware.com.
