United Way of Chester County has partnered with the new online business journal VISTA Today, a community-driven internet based publication developed in partnership with the Chester County Economic Development Council.

VISTA Today delivers a daily stream of uniquely Chester County business, economic and cultural news and events. With professionally written posts and attractive photographs, the site gives a daily snapshot of the county's diverse and unfolding economy.  VISTA Today also maintains a running calendar of events and will soon feature an employment hub where county residents can find their next career opportunity.

Ken Knickerbocker, President and Publisher of VISTA Today said, "Chester County is the most prosperous county in Pennsylvania and has nearly 30,000 small, medium and large businesses and corporations.  7,100 of them have annual sales of more than $500,000, making the county a local and international powerhouse.”

The site is an easy-to-read and entertaining daily business news education about businesses ranging from the Vanguard Group, one of the world's great financial institutions, to the prosperous mushroom industry, to the art of film makers to the potentially game-changing internet start-up DuckDuckGo.com.

"United Way of Chester County is a great partner,” added Knickerbocker. "They not only share our passion for our county; but a vision for making Chester County a unique place to live and work."

Claudia Hellebush, United Way of Chester County President & CEO added, “It’s important to have a news source like Vista Today that is solely focused on the good news happening everyday in Chester County businesses.  We believe that there are endless stories to tell about the impact these local businesses have in helping Chester County thrive.”

VISTA Today will connect United Way of Chester County with business leaders, innovators, investors and planners in moving the county forward with a shared goal of economic health and quality of place.
