Marshall EDC Business Retention & Expansion (BRE) Program

National economic development organizations estimate that over 80% of all new jobs at the state level across the USA, are created by startup businesses and existing businesses, not by the relocation into a state by out-of state firms. The BRE program is a vital component of Marshall EDC's service to assist the private sector in developing and achieving their goals.
