WCED accomplishes its mission through business recruitment, retention and expansion; marketing and public relations; talent recruitment and retention; and support of entrepreneurship.
This year was another strong year for Wake County Economic Development. A key measurement of success is the direct impact our work has on the community and region. For this fiscal year, we saw an increase in jobs and investment, further promoting the growth of our community, a focus on economic mobility through our equitable economic development strategy, and continued focus on building a skilled workforce to grow our world-class talent pipeline.
