Why Become an Investor?

The Jacksonville Regional Economic Development Corporation is focused on job creation as a form of economic development. We know that when more jobs are created in our communities, everyone prospers. 

Jobs bring wealth into our communities because when a resident gets a good paying job, they spend their dollars at local restaurants, stores, service providers and organizations. For many of our investors, this means an increase in their own revenue or customer base. 

Why invest?

  • As a business leader, you believe your business benefits when your community attracts and retains quality businesses and workforce.
  • You believe public and private involvement and investment results in a more robust economy for the entire community.
  • You believe economic development can be achieved with a coordinated, purposeful and local effort.

It is simple.

Attracting new businesses and helping current businesses expand leads to more jobs, a broadened tax base and enhanced services for the benefit of all in our community.

You share a vested interest in seeing the Morgan and Scott region thrive. Join forces with Jacksonville Regional Economic Development Corporation at any of the following levels:
