The Center for Economic Growth is a nonprofit, regional economic and business development organization that serves as the primary point of contact for businesses interested in growing in or moving to New York’s 8-county Capital Region. Whether you are looking for incentives, real estate or comprehensive demographic and business climate information, in need of entrepreneurship or workforce training services, or want to relocate or expand anywhere in the Capital Region, CEG knows the way.

Since its founding in 1987, CEG has played a vital role in creating a rich economic development environment throughout the region by creating world class transportation and logistical hubs, investing in our anchor institutions, making the region an international gateway and helping to advance major economic development projects.

From working to turn Albany International Airport into a world-class facility to helping lay the groundwork for GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ chip plant in Saratoga County, CEG champions the region not only within the boundaries of its eight counties but around the globe as well. Our mission is to market the Capital Region to attract new business and encourage new investments, enable existing businesses to be more competitive in the global marketplace, and promote collaboration and enhance partnerships among the region’s stakeholders.

CEG’s work and vision is supported by more than 250 investors in business, government, education, and the not-for-profit sectors. Additionally, CEG serves as a regional technology center under the New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership program, which is facilitated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and New York Empire State Development Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR).
