Research shows EXISTING businesses create 60% to 80% of all new jobs.
Communities that actively implement an on-going BR&E program focusing on the retention and expansion of local businesses will:
Improve the business climate of the community
Help to make local businesses remain competitive
Stabilize the local economy
WHAT IS BUSINESS RETENTION & EXPANSION?
Keeping an existing business in the community is usually easier than recruiting a new business. Therefore, Extension's BR&E program has offerings that help community leaders and communities to work together to identify barriers local businesses face as they try to survive and grow.
