Focus on Business Retention and Expansion

This webinar demonstrates how Economic Development Organizations have expanded their services from primarily trying to attract new businesses to investing in businesses already located in their communities due to demands from the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn trends in workforce attraction so that your community has the talent required for your businesses to succeed, new ways of helping startups grow into big businesses, and what BRE programs should look like.
