NEOTEC...a true public/private partnership
NEOTEC was established in 1996 through the visionary leadership of county officials in Columbiana, Mahoning, Portage, Stark, Summit and Trumbull counties. They collaborated to form the Joint Office of Economic Development (JOED), which today includes two additional member counties: Medina and Richland. NEOTEC works on behalf of the member counties to carry out the economic development initiatives of the JOED. Through NEOTEC, the JOED’s 8-county leadership remains committed to the goal of regional collaboration to improve economic opportunities in Northeast Ohio.
