Find Incentives and Opportunities: Business Grows in MoCo

Montgomery offers so many great benefits to companies that want to start or grow a business in our exciting county. With our location just inches from the nation’s capital, we have VIP neighbors with 18 federal agency headquarters in our backyard, 3 international airports in close proximity and the Montgomery MOVE program which gives financial incentives to companies moving in to the county. 

At MCEDC, we are your business champions, bringing a strong level of service to our growing community, with expansion and retention continuing to be our top priority. We partner in initiatives to enhance smart business growth in Cybersecurity, BioHealth, IT, Advanced Manufacturing, Corporate Headquarters and other key industries.   

In September, find MCEDC at the Power Women’s Conference, the area’s largest regional women’s business development conference. In October, our Director of Business Recruitment, Spiro Balntas, and I will travel with County Executive Ike Leggett and others on a unique business development trip to China and Korea. Our delegation will meet with well over a dozen government and business officials to advance opportunities for our Montgomery County business leaders.

Congratulations go out to our partners and friends at WorkSource Montgomery for a tremendously successful first year of Summer Rise. And, our office has been abuzz with excitement for our MoCo365 initiative, as we welcome innovators, business owners, and resource providers for our exciting video series. It’s a great time to do business in Montgomery County!

The future starts here and we’re here to show you how.
