GCP Middle-Market Initiative
The Greater Cleveland Partnership's Middle-Market Initiative provides resources and information to help create and sustain long-term success for Northeast Ohio's middle-market companies.
We're also focused on sparking ideas and providing connections to support these companies' growth strategies. Our Middle-Market Knowledge Center is a great starting point to learn more about products and services that support this dynamic segment of the economy.
Our Strategic Partner
The National Center for the Middle Market, a partnership of The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business, SunTrust Banks, Inc., Grant Thornton LLP and Cisco Systems, provides knowledge, leadership, and innovative research on the U.S. middle market.
The first of its kind in the nation, the Center serves middle-market firms, students, academic researchers, policy makers, the media, and other key stakeholders with interests in the health and well-being of the middle market.
It is fully committed to funding and distributing the most credible open-sourced research, dynamically creating new knowledge, providing programs that drive value for middle market companies, and offering a well-informed outlook on the health and future of the middle market via the Middle Market Indicator.
About the U.S. middle market
Nearly 200,000 companies with revenues between $10 million and $1 billion make up the U.S. middle market. These companies:
- Provide 44.5 million jobs
- Account for 34 percent of total private employment
- Generate more than $10 trillion in combined revenues annually.
If looked at as an individual market segment, the U.S. middle market would be the world’s fifth-largest global economy, just behind Japan and ahead of Germany. Clearly, then, there's a need to better understand these companies and provide them with the level of support, attention and advocacy they need.
