Anchor Institution Collaborative
Anchor institutions, such as universities and hospitals—as well as utilities, local government, and even sports teams—are physically bound to the region. Anchors create shared value while advancing the economic conditions of the communities in which they operate; their impact of anchors goes beyond their role as service-providers and employers. Anchors can drive inclusive economic growth as purchasers, real estate developers, and community infrastructure builders.
