Our Good Business initiative supports sustainable entrepreneurship and business development and is designed to foster and catalyze local, independent retailers, manufacturers, professional service providers, and more. In addition to the programs below, we provide consulting services for private companies, municipal government, and anchor institutions to cultivate local businesses and fill gaps in economic development activities.
We believe relationships matter and are integral in a sustainable local economy.
How we Foster Good Business:
Local Works offers flexible, inspiring coworking space for local entrepreneurs and teams.
The Good Business Summit is an annual event with business leaders and advocates exploring innovative models for success, while at the same time creating a positive community impact.
Members are invited to register for a complimentary 30-min business consultation with an expert from our network.
