What is cobb edge?

Cobb’s Competitive EDGE, an initiative of the Cobb Chamber of Commerce and its community-wide partners, is Cobb County’s first holistic, transformational community and economic development strategy and implementation plan designed to strengthen our quality of life, education and infrastructure assets – and market Cobb County to the world, thus generating high-wage job growth. EDGE partners include Cobb County Development Authority and the development authorities of Cobb’s cities.

Developed with input from county, city, business and education leaders, Cobb EDGE provides a first-ever strategic blueprint for comprehensive community and economic development in Cobb County. EDGE starts with improving Cobb County through its focus on community development. When we improve our communities, we improve the “product” that our economic developers market to prospective businesses, including quality of life, quality communities and top-notch educational opportunities for Cobb’s citizens.
