TEDC’s Business Accelerator provides access to development services that ensure business longevity and success.  As an active community stakeholder, we capitalize on partnerships with local chambers, business development centers, and other organizations committed to excellence in economic development. Each organization provides different types of assistance to start-up and growing enterprises while also leveraging the expertise of our partners. 

TEDC makes an effort to coordinate for greater impact and reduce duplication of business development services.  Below you will find information on and/or links to upcoming partnership programs.
