It is the vision of Joint Venture Monterey Bay that our tri-county region will enjoy a vibrant and resilient regional economy based on collaboration, sustainable development, and innovation.
Our mission is to facilitate and promote sustainable development and innovation through the network of sustainability-related interests across all sectors in the Monterey Bay region in support of building a thriving and resilient regional economy based on inclusiveness, collaboration, and principles of sustainability.
JVMB is “inclusive” in that we seek to partner with and promote anyone that is doing anything in the direction of sustainability. We are firmly committed to consensus building and “neutrality” rather than “polarization” in that we seek to collect points on all sides of issues analyze them for validity and report unbiased results. It is our goal to connect with parties on all sides of issues with the goal of identifying any possible common ground to build on. We use a “systems” approach to integrate sustainable solutions across sectors through the region. We will take positions on issues consistent with our mission and advocate for them from a centrist perspective that acknowledges and respects valid points on all sides of the issue. For any issue in the region, the positions that we advocate for are the application of sustainable solutions with triple bottom line benefits that are good for people, planet, and profits.
JVMB is a network of sustainability-minded individuals, organizations, businesses, and investors that recognize the value and competitive advantages of our region. We are committed to a course of sustainable development and innovation that will protect and provide benefit to the economic vitality, the natural resources, and the people of the region. We are working at the state, national, and global levels to share information and bring resources to our regional efforts.
JVMB identifies and promotes sustainable development and innovation across all sectors throughout the Monterey Bay tri-county region. We encourage and support the development of new sustainability-related businesses. We monitor public agencies and local government looking for opportunities to provide sustainable solutions to issues on their agendas. We advance sustainable development initiatives to address regional needs. We provide opportunities to leverage local efforts through regional collaboration.
JVMB seeks out and identifies sustainability-minded individuals, organizations, businesses, investors, events, activities, and venues throughout the Monterey Bay tri-county region to add to our networks. We keep track of the activities and goals of our network members, public agencies, and local government to identify opportunities for synergy and leverage. We have a presence in all three counties where we help businesses to develop sustainably, to obtain funding, and to partner with complimentary businesses. We provide co-marketing and cross-marketing opportunities and work to raise awareness of, and participation in the developing sustainable economy in our region. JVMB reaches out to partner with Silicon Valley and with other regions to connect them to opportunities in our region.
