About 1Berkshire

One Community Unified in Advancing Economic Development

1Berkshire is  the official Regional Economic Development Organization as designated by the Commonwealth of MA. 1Berkshire creates an innovative approach to traditional economic development through projects that leverage the considerable strengths of the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce, Berkshire Creative and the Berkshire Visitors Bureau.

1Berkshire was formed in the summer of 2010 when the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce, the Berkshire Visitors Bureau, the Berkshire Economic Development Corporation, and  the Berkshire Creative Economy Council agreed to blend their operations. These partner organizations retain their individual missions and services while operating under the umbrella of 1Berkshire.

Dedicated to leveraging our commercial, creative, and community resources, 1Berkshire offers a seamless, unified economic development engine for the Berkshires, designed to position the region to thrive.

1Berkshire is here to help businesses at any stage of existence. If you are looking to open, expand, or relocate to the Berkshires, please contact Jonathan Butler at 413.499.1600  ext. 114 or jbutler@berkshirechamber.com.
