An exciting new dimension to our traditional definition of economic development is “business creation.” We all know the foundation of local economic development as business retention, expansion and attraction. But consider expanding that foundation by assisting entrepreneurs in our communities. How is your community engaging and supporting the home-based businesses, the small one and two-person shops, the folks that are baking, tinkering, consulting and landscaping – those who are experts in their skill but perhaps don’t know much about how to set up and grow a business?


Communities can take creative measures to provide support to this growing business sector. Some are providing co-working space, some are providing “office hours” to help early-stage entrepreneurs navigate the process of forming a business. Some are providing legal counsel, IT support, accounting and bookkeeping. Helping individuals go from an idea to a company is an exciting pursuit and one that more and more municipalities are realizing is critical to their local economy. Attendees will learn about ways to help their community “create” business in town.
