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:

  • Business-led
  • Bipartisan
  • 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.
