About the Council on Competitiveness
For nearly four decades, the Council on Competitiveness (Council) has championed a competitive agenda for the United States to attract investment and talent and spur the commercialization of new ideas. While the players may have changed since its founding in 1986, the mission remains as vital as ever—to increase US productivity and raise the standard of living for all Americans.
The members of the Council—CEOs, university presidents, labor leaders and national lab directors—represent a powerful, nonpartisan voice that sets aside politics and seeks results. By providing a real-world perspective to policymakers, the Council’s private sector network makes an impact on decision-making across a broad spectrum of issues—from the cutting-edge of science and technology, to the democratization of innovation, to the shift from energy weakness to strength that supports the growing renaissance in US manufacturing. The Council firmly believes that with the right policies, the strengths and potential of the US economy far outweighs the current challenges the nation faces on the path to higher growth and greater opportunity for all Americans.
