As a membership organization, WEDA is sponsored by economic developers around the United States. The Alliance provides their members with business contacts as part of their membership. This innovative paradigm means the for-profit and non-profit pay nothing for the site location services that WEDA provides.
“Being in business in the United States has been tough enough over the last decade without having to pay for something as a simple as a selection of sites to choose from for your company’s expansion or relocation. There are billions of dollars in incentives and tens of thousands of economic development professionals that want to help you.” – Eric Kleinsorge, CEO, World Economic Development Alliance
WEDA offers many advantages over even state project submission sites:
100% free – No charge ever for a company that is looking to expand or relocate.
Completely anonymous – The company name and contact is kept private until they are ready to speak to an economic development corporation.
Simple, easy to vet submissions – WEDA submissions are designed to be preliminary, but complete enough to begin the decision-making process.
“WEDA can provide submissions from nearly every state of the union. We are even willing to do a targeted campaign for areas that we don’t already have a member. And don’t be fooled, most states and municipalities offer great incentives. We also advise that our client-companies expand their search to states that they might not have sure of.”- Eric Kleinsorge, CEO, World Economic Development Alliance
