Small Business and Economic Development

Our mission is to foster economic growth and development within our community. We partner with local companies, organizations, and MBA students to ascertain the resources needed for success as well as uncover any potential gaps or strategies required.

Economic development is much more than just business growth. It leads to job creation, increased wages, and wealth for a region as well as an improved quality of life for its citizens. A strong local economy can attract new businesses, skilled labor, and capital investments, which all lead to increased economic activity in the area.
