Our Story

The Guilford County Economic Development Alliance (GCEDA) was created in 2015 with the goal of facilitating exponential growth in the Greensboro-High Point region. Through real and effective collaboration among the local governments of Guilford County and the cities of Greensboro and High Point, as well as the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce and the High Point Economic Development Corporation, GCEDA works to retain and expand existing industries in the area, as well as attract new business opportunities and grow emerging sectors. Under the alliance, the organizations work together with equal voice to manage projects, share leads, conduct research and continue to lead Greensboro-High Point into its increasingly bright future.
