About the Greater Cleveland Partnership

With more than 14,000 members, the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) is a membership association of Northeast Ohio companies and organizations and one of the largest metropolitan chambers of commerce in the nation. Our organizational core includes our small-business partner, the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE), a one-stop resource for our small-business member companies. COSE provides cost-effective group-purchasing programs, advocacy on legislative and regulatory issues, and resources focused on helping companies grow.

Our History

The Greater Cleveland Partnership was created in March 2004 by the consolidation of Cleveland Tomorrow, the Greater Cleveland Growth Association, the Greater Cleveland Roundtable and their primary affiliates— the Northeast Ohio Technology Coalition (NorTech), COSE and the Commission on Economic Inclusion. Through this merger, the private sector is able to better allocate two of its most precious resources—dollars and committed leadership—toward creating a more vibrant economy in Northeast Ohio—as well as speak with one voice on behalf of job- and wealth-creation priorities locally, in Columbus, and in Washington, D.C.

Our Mission

To mobilize private sector leadership, expertise and resources to create attractive business conditions that create jobs, grow investment and improve the economic prosperity of the region.
