On July 7, the Economic Development Collaborative (EDC) launched Business Forward Ventura County, an initiative to provide services and resources to local businesses and entrepreneurs.
The new Business Forward Ventura County website will serve as a centralized platform to exhibit the rich diversity of Ventura County business associations and incubators, Chambers of Commerce, government organizations, and other resources that both provide assistance and prioritize the improvement of industry.
When asked what the EDC hopes will evolve from Business Forward specifically, EDC President and CEO, Bruce Stenslie, remarked that he and participating stakeholders are confident it will become the business community's "go-to virtual resource" to access and learn all about the business-related support the county has to offer. Stenslie stated that Business Forward also serves to educate and attract potential new business and entrepreneurial capital to the region, outside of current county residents.
The Business Forward website is officially live and accessible to the Public at www.businessforwardvc.com.
