SAMCEDA believes, that innovation is fundamental to our region’s economy and ability to compete and maintain its economic leadership into the future. We are committed to working to both sustain and drive this innovation through our efforts on multiple fronts. Whether it is through economic studies, public policy discussions, or events that showcase what business provides to our communities we will continue our efforts to position San Mateo County as a great place to live and work, to grow and prosper.
One of the primary objectives of SAMCEDA is to support, champion, recognize and bring attention to the San Mateo County business community. All too often the contributions made by business to the economic health and well being of a community are overlooked and under appreciated. For San Mateo County a healthy business community directly translates to a healthy community and SAMCEDA strives to spread that message in a variety of ways.
In a new study commissioned by SAMCEDA and our Economic Vitality Research and Education Foundation we examined trends affecting workforce development in San Mateo County and the Peninsula, a sub-region in the heart of Silicon Valley. It spotlights the persistence of poverty even in the face of surging job growth, reviews the best practices fostering upward mobility for the workforce, and outlines strategies that can be carried out by workforce boards, community colleges, and private industry.
Public policy is an area of primary involvement for SAMCEDA in its advocacy and leadership efforts. Focusing on national, state, regional and local legislation and policy initiatives, SAMCEDA’s broad, pro-business based approach provides for informed perspective and action on critical policy issues.
