The East Bay Economic Development Alliance (East Bay EDA) is plays a major role in the success of the East Bay region. Supervisor Andersen is honored to serve on the Executive Committee of the East Bay EDA. It is the regional voice and networking resource for strengthening the economy, building the workforce and enhancing the quality of life in the East Bay. East Bay EDA represents a broad network of local business, government and community leaders who promote the resources of our region to facilitate business opportunities and growth. 


East Bay EDA employs many strategies for stimulating economic development in the region. One of our focuses is to develop and champion the Early Childhood Math campaign with regional partners and promote STEM skills for local jobs. We regularly sponsor education forums featuring panelists and speakers with diverse perspectives on crucial infrastructure needs such as housing, transportation, water and broadband. We organize business meet-ups, broker breakfasts and mixers to promote economic development resources and opportunities in the region. We also market the innovation of the region through the popular annual East Bay Innovation Awards. For more information about economic development and our various initiatives, go to
