About the Greater Cleveland Partnership

With more than 8,000 members, the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) is one of the largest metropolitan chambers of commerce in the nation. We're focused on driving the economic vitality of our region through building a strong and thriving climate for the broad business community, including small businesses, middle-market companies and large corporations.

Our organizational core includes our small-business division, the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE); our middle-market initiative, Accelerating Middle-Market Progress (AMMP); the Commission on Economic Inclusion, a GCP program whose focus includes creating positive, measurable outcomes in board, senior management, workforce and supplier diversity within the Northeast Ohio employer community; and OHTec, an advocate and support resource for the technology industry.

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.
