Growth Report Stories Due Thursday

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The deadline to submit stories for the 2019 Growth Report is this Thursday.

The theme for this year is “transformation,” from building new spaces to investing in new equipment to hiring new employees, The Business Journal wants to hear the stories of how regional businesses and organizations worked to transform their companies and communities.

“The Growth Report provides companies a once-annual opportunity to have their accomplishments printed alongside other positive stories from our determined, resilient business community,” said Andrea Wood, publisher of The Business Journal. “Even as our region is transformed by external forces beyond our control, we strive to make the necessary changes to keep our business base strong for the workforce of today and tomorrow.”

Story information will be edited and published along with more than 200 positive and uplifting stories about how other businesses and organizations in the region are growing and transforming. With more than 130 pages packed with vital information, The Growth Report serves as the region’s No. 1 business resource, which business leaders refer to year-round. The issue will be published Jan. 30.

There is no charge to submit story information. Send all stories to by Jan. 17.
