Business Retention and Expansion
Up to 80 percent of all new jobs are created by existing companies. We provide hands-on assistance to businesses to ensure they stay strong and grow in Oklahoma. We offer workshops, one-on-one visits, community training, and more.
RFP Response Assistance
When a new out-of-state business locates in Oklahoma, it can provide a real boost to the community and the region. The Regional Team can help communities best respond to a Request for Proposal (RFP) from companies seeking new locations.
Planning works best when it addresses local needs and opportunities. We can connect communities to helpful resources to create and implement a solid strategic plan.
Regional Economic Development Partnerships
Regional partnerships afford communities the opportunity to expand existing businesses and attract new ones. By effectively marketing human and financial resources, regions are able to boast an expanded workforce and larger variety of available site locations, financial incentives and tourism attractions.
Establishing and retaining skilled workers is vital for existing and new companies. We can help communities and businesses connect to Oklahoma’s successful network of workforce development professionals.
