Job Quality:
Growing Industry Clusters

At its core, we are a collaborative aimed at bringing quality jobs, environmental sustainability, and economic growth focused on a few key sectors: advanced manufacturing, cybersecurity/IT, green tech, and sustainable logisitics.

Brookings defines “industry clusters” as “groups of firms that gain a competitive advantage through local proximity and interdependence.” A cluster-based approach creates a geographic concentration of related companies and other organizations in a sector or field…developing an industry cluster generates greater productivity and innovation, higher wages, and more entrepreneurial activity than developing a single industry sector on its own.
