An Important Announcement From Team Neo

The Regional Economic Competitiveness Strategy and the
Evolution of Team NEO

A new regional economic competitiveness strategy that aims to
accelerate the pace of job growth in Northeast Ohio and ultimately
outperform the nation was announced today by the Regional
Competitiveness Council (RCC), a 15-member steering committee of
Northeast Ohio’s business and philanthropy leaders. To
facilitate this job-growth acceleration, the RCC also announced the
establishment of an organization that will operate as a
collaboration of Northeast Ohio’s major chambers, businesses,
foundations and JobsOhio. The functions of both Team NEO and
NorTech, are being folded into the new organization.

The new organization, which will retain the Team NEO name and
launch by the end of 2014, will:

  • Drive a regional competitiveness strategy, establish priorities
    and goals, eliminate overlaps and ensure growth is accompanied by
    opportunities for all segments of the population

  • Enhance the retention/expansion efforts of our chambers of
    commerce with shared expertise and services such as data analytics
    and industry specialists

  • Coordinate a workforce agenda to meet cluster and
    retention/expansion/attraction needs and address new issues as they

  • Identify future clusters

  • Leverage and expand the impact of business/philanthropy funding
    and efforts

  • Serve as the JobsOhio Regional Partner for Northeast Ohio
