A Next Generation Sector Partnership is a visionary approach to fostering collaboration and growth within a specific industry. It is a dynamic and innovative model that brings together key stakeholders from various sectors to address the unique challenges and opportunities facing a particular industry or economic cluster.

Unlike traditional partnerships, Next Generation Sector Partnerships place the industry’s businesses and leaders in the driver’s seat. Manufacturers, as the primary players, take charge by defining the partnership’s goals and agenda. Support partners, such as government agencies, educational institutions, and economic development organizations, then align their efforts to assist in achieving those objectives.

The primary focus is on strengthening the industry from within. By nurturing a strong network of relationships and facilitating the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and resources, Next Generation Sector Partnerships create an ecosystem of growth and prosperity for all involved.

At the heart of this approach is the recognition that the industry’s participants are best equipped to identify their needs and chart their path forward. By collectively working towards common goals, sharing best practices, and implementing targeted strategies, these partnerships generate lasting positive impacts on the industry and the communities they serve.

Next Generation Sector Partnerships like HAMP usher in a new era of industry growth, where businesses thrive, communities prosper, and stakeholders unite to shape a brighter future together.
