Business Development & Resources

One of our key initiatives is to champion business growth. As drivers of the region’s economic vitality, our mission is to help small businesses start, grow and expand.

Our focus is on creating and sustaining the best possible environment for businesses to thrive, grow, add jobs and drive the region’s economy. One of the ways we help is by connecting you to the programs and resources you need.

As an example of one of the many ways we help members make connections is the role we played as part of MGM Springfield’s Community Partners Network. We helped to provide awareness to our members on the MGM procurement process and timeline for local suppliers to be aware of bid opportunities.
