Economic Development

Cayuga County residents are vital assets to business development and growth. Highly skilled and working in locally owned and international businesses, the successful and productive workforce found county-wide demonstrates enthusiasm, a positive attitude, and a strong work ethic. The Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce advocates as the voice of these businesses, and together with an outstanding team of public and private partner organizations (see list below), takes a collaborative approach to economic development in our area.

Several organizations provide a host of management and consulting services to entrepreneurs and businesses, including the Cayuga Economic Development Agency (CEDA), the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), and SCORE, all of which are co-located with the Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce. With CEDA as the lead agent for economic development, retention, expansion, and recruitment efforts, the Chamber liaisons with the business community, state agencies, and local municipalities.
