About the Tampa Bay Partnership:
The Partnership was founded in 1994 by local business leaders and elected officials who had the vision and belief in forming a partnership between regional economic development organizations, stakeholders and businesses. Encompassing eight-counties, including Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota, the Partnership brings together a region, which retains its diversity while benefitting from the collective clout of a cohesive organization.
Close to 150 public and private businesses, along with 11 regional economic development organizations, make up the Partnership. In addition, the Partnership works closely with local and state officials to stimulate the Tampa Bay region’s economic growth and prosperity.
Tampa Bay Partnership Mission Statement:
