mission statement

The East Bay Economic Development Alliance is the regional voice and networking resource for strengthening the economy, building the workforce and enhancing the quality of life in the East Bay. 

We are a cross-sector, public-private partnership that promotes strategic economic development throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. East Bay EDA convenes diverse networks of businesses, local government, and community leaders who embrace the extraordinary value of our region as an unrivaled place to live, work, and do business. East Bay EDA champions regional collaboration through direct business services, legislative advocacy and regional networking by connecting efforts that support a healthy and vibrant economy.

The East Bay is in one of the world’s most dynamic economies and it is one of the nation’s fastest growing regions. We create accurate, original information about the region through commissioned studies and research, and promote the assets of the East Bay region through educational business forums, comprehensive networking events, access to business resources and regional marketing.
