CCEDC launches update Web site to help local businesses grow

EXTON – The Chester County Economic Development Council (CCEDC) is launching a newly designed website to assist businesses with financing solutions, location services, workforce development, innovation and entrepreneurship.

“Whether you’ve done business with us for 30 years or you’re new to CCEDC, we consider ourselves a business community service and it’s our commitment to be accessible,” says Gary Smith, CCEDC President and CEO. “The four service areas that are the focus of our redesigned website at make it even easier for businesses to access the information they need during this critical time for recovery and growth.”

Says COO and Executive Vice President Michael Grigalonis, “For over 60 years, our mission has been focused on driving smart growth while preserving the unmatched quality of place we enjoy in Chester County. Our website was intentionally designed to reflect that balanced mission.” 

With one click, business owners can now immediately access:

  • Financing solutions through federal, state and local agencies that complement conventional, commercial loans
  • Workforce development solutions that assist businesses with hiring, job-seeker support, and employee training
  • Location services that help businesses find the right home near regional employment centers and major transportation routes
  • Innovation & entrepreneurship tools to help with funding, workspace, business guidance and key connections

These services are administered through various industry partnerships, affiliate organizations and initiatives, which are also accessible throughout the website. The site includes targeted resources for an array of sectors, including advanced manufacturing, agriculture, energy, health care, information technology and international business. New websites for those industry partnerships have also launched.

The launch of CCEDC’s new website, produced in collaboration with Miller Designworks in Phoenixville, PA, comes after CCEDC assisted more than 1,300 Chester County businesses with COVID relief funding through its work administering Chester County’s Main Street Preservation Program grants, CWCA loans, CHIRP grants, and the federal Paycheck Protection Program.
