One of the best sources of information and assistance for startup and expanding business is the local economic development agency. These agencies are public, private or even a public/private partnership, and their purpose is to promote economic growth and development by assisting existing industries and encouraging new businesses to locate in their area.

Local economic development agencies will help any business, regardless of size, with market demographics, real estate costs and availability, zoning and regulatory issues, workforce demographics, training issues, referrals to similar companies and many other issues of concern. Additionally, local economic development groups offer local government, private and not-for-profit sectors, and local communities the opportunity to work together to improve the local economy by focusing on enhancing competitiveness, increasing sustainable growth and ensuring that growth is inclusive.
