About 1Berkshire

1Berkshire is an independent not-for-profit corporation charged with strengthening and growing the Berkshire economy using an innovative collaborative approach among the region’s business, tourism, economic, and creative development efforts.

The work of 1Berkshire is retaining and attracting jobs, tourism and creativity for the benefit of everyone in the Berkshires.

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 open, expand, or relocate to the Berkshires, please call  David Curtis, Economic Development Specialist, at 413-499-1600 x.102 or email economicdev@1berkshire.com.
