In a nutshell we facilitate job growth by:
  • Helping our current businesses find the resources and money they need to succeed and grow
  • Guiding new entrepreneurs toward helpful resources, business loans and site locations
  • Attracting new businesses to grow an industry cluster or fill a local product or service void
