As a five-year economic development program of aggressive business expansion and attraction, Advantage Manhattan "Power Our Potential" will have a tremendous impact on the Manhattan area. Funding for the strengthened program will be sought from an expanded base of business and professional firms to realize the potential for improving their community, own marketshare, visibility and support the economic prosperity of the Manhattan area.


The measurable goals and objectives for Advantage Manhattan "Power Our Potential" have been developed through a process that involved many stakeholders and community leaders. This process ensures that the Chamber's goals for this economic development initiative mirror the needs of the business community, public sector officials and other leaders in the Manhattan area.


Once fundraising is complete, following expertise of our investors will be an integral piece of the Advantage Manhattan "Power Our Potential" initiative. Our investors will benefit from an enhanced reporting system that will benchmark the Chamber's economic development efforts.


Full financial disclosure and accountability will continue throughout the initiative. Additionally, the Chamber will continually develop opportunities for investor involvement in the program's execution and implementation.
