GO Virginia Piedmont Opportunity Corridor (Region 9)
What is GO Virginia?
The Virginia Initiative for Growth & Opportunity in each Region or “GO Virginia” is an initiative launched by the Virginia Business Higher Education Council and the Council on Virginia’s Future to help generate private-sector growth and job opportunities in the Commonwealth. GO Virginia is based on three main factors: 1) the state needs strong private sector growth and job creation; 2) effective collaboration among business, government, and higher education is essential to grow and diversify the state’s economy; and 3) state government must provide incentives for strategic job-focused collaboration in each region. Highlights of the initiative include:
- Provides new framework for strengthening the economy in each region through enhanced collaboration by business, education and local government
- Incentivized and encouraged by the State
- Voluntary – no requirement that every locality participate
More information can be found on the GO Virginia website.
