Business Retention

What is a Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Program and why does it matter to you?

The Converse EDC BRE program focuses on ensuring that our existing businesses are successful and will stay in business in Converse. Our program also helps us know when you are ready to expand and help you with resources required for success.

We do this through a number of ways:

  • Confidential Formal and Informal Site Visits
  • Networking and Learning Events
  • Business Appreciation Events (“Converse All-Stars”)
  • Annual Converse Business Directory
  • Small Business Saturday
  • Other resources and customized means of support

In short, we are here to get you what you need. Whether it is workforce recruitment, job fairs or job training, Utility rebates or financial management seminars, security concerns or getting building permits, we’re here for you. Let us help.

Chances are, what you need is only a phone call away.
