Tracking Business Needs

Conduct periodic formal surveys, or use more informal means to track and remain attentive to the needs of existing businesses, as these otherwise tend to be overlooked while local economic developers search for new companies to attract. Develop strategies for addressing their issues, such as future infrastructure needs, workforce skills, etc. This is frequently done in conjunction with a business retention and expansion program (BREP) or an Existing Industry Program (EIP).
