Organization: Community and Economic Development Associates (CEDA)

Sector: 501C-3 Non-Profit

Organization Mission: CEDA was created in 1986 as a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation then called the Southeastern Minnesota Development Corporation. In 2010, the agency became Community & Economic Development Associates (CEDA) as a result of increased interest and inquiries received from communities outside of the agency’s original service area of Southeast Minnesota. The name change reflects CEDA’s commitment to provide services to fit the needs of communities throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that Cbeam will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, Cbeam's distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevancies with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements.

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. Cbeam could be an interesting first step.
