The Hampton Roads Alliance, a partner to Newport News, has launched a new project to understand the current economic landscape of the region. This Business Retention & Expansion (BRE) initiative includes gathering corporate intelligence from existing businesses within Hampton Roads, through active listening and identifying ways economic development partners could assist with growth.
During this process, the Alliance has supported Newport News in marketing the City and attracting new, complementary companies to the existing ecosystem. In addition, the Alliance offers resources such as inter-regional, business-to-business matchmaking, connecting companies to workforce development solutions and encouraging corporate decision-makers to grow their businesses in Newport News.
The Alliance works collaboratively to lead the 757 region in attracting, growing and retaining companies and talent to create a more resilient, inclusive and equitable region of choice. The organization’s vision is to be the catalytic partner that drives economic empowerment for the region, companies, organizations and people who call the 757 home.
