The best deals are the ones in which everyone wins.
Whether creating internal partnerships between local businesses and organizations, to larger partnerships between the BEDC and other economic development entities, harnessing the strengths and abilities of others is one of the most strategic ways to create economic vitality for a city, county or region.
In today’s fast-paced environment, a “do-it-alone” approach is not the best strategy for growth. That is why the Bartow Economic Development Council is proud to collaborate with other area organizations to ensure that when it comes to economic development, we all win.
