Economic Development Support

Our client base is entrepreneur-focused. Growth comes with success and may include additional space, equipment and personnel. Most entrepreneurs are not aware they may qualify for incentives as a reward for expansion. This is a reason we host an annual review of progress (Annual Business Checkup) to project future requirements and identify planning that can add value to their business. Real Estate is often a key asset to the owner both in the operation of their business as well as in succession or estate planning. We have internal support to enhance the value of your real property.

Some of the benefits we offer are:

  • Energy efficiency upgrades along with qualifying tax credits integrating the technologies we track that a typical business owner may not
  • Corporate finance options to meet present and future cash flow demands
  • Corporate training grants with customized training for expanding business
  • Research and Development support consistent with changing technologies
  • Tax abatements and review of property taxes to maintain accuracy
  • Supporting your expansion to new locations domestic or international

The more we know about your business, how it links to other businesses, suppliers you have, or supplies you may need in the future, the more value we can add in our technical services.
