Let us help you grow

Existing Business MeetingThe Bedford County Office of Economic Development has an established existing business program that supports the growth and success of companies throughout the community. This is accomplished through a business visitation and recognition program, quarterly business meetings, and a strong communication plan to encourage open communication and build trust. Our goal is to connect existing businesses with the right information, resources, and programs in ways that will improve the overall business climate and opportunities for growth.

Here are a few ways Bedford County can help you establish and grow your business:

  • Provide a single point of contact for Bedford County business services;
  • Assist in facilitating your project’s development review and the permit process;
  • Serve as an advocate within County government and assist companies through the necessary regulatory requirements and approvals;
  • Coordinate incentives and grants based on job creation and economic growth.

Whether its assistance with workforce needs, exploring the possibility of exports to foreign markets, or looking for development financing, the Office of Economic Development is here to connect you with the right solutions for expanding your business.

To schedule an on-site visit at your place of business or discuss these opportunities by phone, please contact our office at 1 (540) 587-5670 or email us here.
