Western Mass Economic Development Council: Transformative Economic Investment Strategy in Western Massachusetts

Our Approach

To identify potential economic investment ventures for the Pioneer Valley, the MassINC/Cambridge Econometrics research team applied a mixed-methods approach that involved.

This method is not intended to produce an exhaustive list of all economic investment opportunities. Rather, the objective here was to identify tangible economic investment opportunities and demonstrate that the region has significant overlooked economic potential. Regional leaders and their partners will need to work together to conduct due diligence and further develop these concepts into actionable investments and initiatives.

Key Findings

The Accelerating Inclusive Growth in the Pioneer Valley report serves as a call to action for policymakers, industry leaders, and community stakeholders to support strategic investments that will drive both the regional and state economy forward.
