Happy 2024! Later this month, the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber will launch our new strategic framework focusing on growth. We’ll prioritize growing our population, growing our economy, and growing cultural vibrancy—with the foundation of it all being our effort to grow a strong business community.
In this issue, you’ll read about the kind of growth we’re discussing. We have a story on how university talent, especially students coming to college here from out of town and out of the country, presents a great opportunity for Cincinnati to grow its population. You’ll read about four fast-growing companies helping to define our new economy. And you’ll be immersed in the region’s diverse arts organizations, thanks to a phenomenal story about the Black and Brown artists and creators on the rise here.
A stronger business community looks to the future, and you’ll read how a group of business leaders traveled north to Cleveland and Akron to study new models of county government. You’ll also get hungry viewing the West End’s new chocolate factory from Aglamesis Bros.
I hope 2024 brings your business, your family, and your friends tremendous joy and sweet success. We’ll be excited to support you along the road.
