Business Retention and Expansion Program
VEDP’s BRE program helps support the growth of existing Virginia firms through business site visits, corporate HQ calls, supply chain strategies, and business intelligence. Managers want to understand the challenges and opportunities for a company’s growth as well as identify opportunities to improve Virginia’s business climate.
VEDP’s BRE managers carry out a targeted outreach strategy to key Virginia businesses in partnership with local and regional economic development offices and serve as a resource for Virginia’s traded-sector and economic-growth driver companies. Targeted outreach strategies include, but are not limited to, the Virginia Economic Gardening program, which provides qualifying second-stage companies with custom resources to identify and resolve distinct growth challenges that traditional business assistance and incentives do not address.
