Sturgeon County Economic Development uses business retention and expansion activities to strengthen the connection between local companies and the community while encouraging each business to continue to grow.
Through direct interactions, events, and research we gain valuable insights into business practices, core values, opportunities for growth or future initiatives as well as the challenges of each company. We proactively turn this business intelligence into value added services, programs, and/or products that address individual and shared company opportunities and problems.
One of the key means of gathering business intelligence from local companies is through executive interviews and/or surveys. We coordinate routine meetings with senior leaders from existing County businesses where we ask thoughtful, holistic and quantifiable questions. The answers we obtain from these interviews will often directly affect the decisions and resource allocated across our department and organization. They are also a key component in our efforts to build and strengthen relationships with our local business community.
Whether you are a new or existing business, we encourage you to contact us to learn more about how you can Start (and grow!) in Sturgeon.
