Greater Louisville Inc. launches first ever regional partnership website
Louisville, Ky. (July 6, 2023) – For the first time, there is a single website to market the Greater Louisville region and share resources with relocating and expanding companies. Greater Louisville Inc., the Metro Chamber of Commerce and regional economic development organization, brought together counties in Kentucky and Southern Indiana to launch the Greater Louisville Partnership website. The goal of the new site is to create a single destination for information on doing business and living in Greater Louisville for businesses and individuals outside the market.
The site was designed in partnership with local firm Mightily, after a thorough national RFP process, and features a plethora of resources that businesses and site selectors need when considering Greater Louisville for a project. Resources include data on the regional economy, a property locator, information on tax structure and incentives, and more. Coming soon, each invested county in the Greater Louisville Partnership will also have their own webpage on the site that will share their unique assets and advantages to assist a project as it is narrowing down possible locations.
“Since officially launching the Greater Louisville Partnership in 2016, we have created strong processes and momentum, but lacked a single destination we could send leads that illustrated the assets of our region,” said Sarah Davasher-Wisdom, president and CEO of Greater Louisville Inc. “This new state-of-the-art site not only formalizes the Greater Louisville Partnership, but also will help us better compete with peer markets, further promote our regional brand, and ultimately bring more investment to our entire region.”
In addition to providing resources, the site will also serve as the landing page for a national marketing campaign that will be launched later this year. Louisville Metro Government allocated funding in their 2023-2024 budget to support the marketing campaign and regional efforts. Louisville Metro Government, the City of Jeffersontown, Spencer County, Trimble County, and Harrison County, IN, are lead investors in the site who provided initial support, in addition to funding provided by GLI’s investors to launch the site.
“Louisville and all our neighbors win when we find great opportunities to work together as a region,” said Louisville Mayor Craig Greenberg. “When a site selector or business owner goes to the new website, they will quickly be able to learn about our region’s affordable costs of living, decreasing income taxes, innovative industry clusters, and quality of life amenities, that make our region the location of choice for any company looking to grow quickly. I am looking forward to continue partnering with GLI and all our county partners to make our region a national and international destination of choice.”
The site will be regularly updated with relevant information and news about the region. Visit www.greaterlouisvillepartnership.com for more information.
