Strategic Plan

Greater Oshkosh EDC launched in 2015 as the community’s first true private-public nonprofit economic development corporation with a comprehensive strategy and community-wide investment from broad-based stakeholders. Having now completed an inaugural campaign, Greater Oshkosh EDC seeks to transform the regional business and economic conditions by increasing our region’s overall personal wealth, our business profitability, community investments, and standard of living – measured against other regions.

This will happen by accomplishing a plan of work that is committed to creating an economically vital community, making development processes seamless for business, and maintaining and developing tools and resources to enhance business opportunities for success.
