Team Burlington

Burlington has brought the major city economic development organizations together to form a dynamic team that is focused on the creation of a progressive and dynamic city with a unique approach for business development services.  Team Burlington has undertaken a number of successful initiatives, including developing a common brand image that captures the characteristics of what Burlington has to offer and moving four of the partners into one location to enhance economies of scale and promote communications.  The Team also organizes a Business Summit that brings together local business experts and Burlington businesses to celebrate Burlington’s “home field advantage”. (refer to additional details below)

Beyond its borders Team Burlington is revered as one of the reasons that the community is seen as “leading edge”.  The Team has been recognized by the American Planning Association and the Economic Development Council of Ontario as a best practice and the one-stop-shop image for investors projects a business community that is cohesive and successful.

Business Summit

Team Burlington hosts a biannual business summit to address current issues and initiatives impacting the business community.  This summit is an opportunity for business leaders to provide insight into major projects and network.  The 2013 Business Summit  was titled Burlington 2040 – Building a City of the Future. This summit featured keynote speaker Steffan Braun, Head of Competence Team Urban Systems Engineering and coordinator for Morgenstadt-Initiative for Fraunhofer IAO who discussed topics such as energy, buildings, mobility, transportation, information, communication, safety and security.  The Summit was successful in identifying priority issues from the Burlington business community and translating them into the City of Burlington’s Official Plan and other priority projects.
