Economic Development

Economic development is the Columbus Partnership's top collective priority. 

In 2010, the Partnership founded Columbus 2020 (now known as One Columbus) to lead regional economic development for Central Ohio. The organization recently closed a decade of unprecedented economic development success, surpassing all goals established with the launch of the organization and establishing the Columbus Region as the Midwest’s growth leader.
