Economic Development in the Greater Norwich Area Economic development by definition is the effort to seek to improve the economic well-being and quality of life for a community. This is generally achieved by what NCDC views as the B.R.E.A.D. of the organization; Business Retention, Expansion, Attraction and Development. It’s NCDC’s goal to be able to provide top-notch customer service to help your business achieve its goals. We recognize the time-sensitive nature of your business projects and are committed to helping you step through what is often a complicated process. Expansion and retention programs are extremely important to a thriving community and we are constantly exploring new ways to assist existing businesses. We have formed connections in the city and region that allow us to better understand the intricacies of adapting or starting your business in the area. NCDC has partnered with the City of Norwich, Norwich Public Utilities, and the Greater Norwich Area Chamber of Commerce to create a Doing Business in Norwich Resource Guide. The Guide assists businesses in writing a business plan and working through approval processes, to hiring employees and scheduling a ribbon cutting If you know of a business that could use help crafting creative strategies for growing their business or navigating the sometimes pitfall-ridden path to starting a new business, we would love to help. We don’t have all the solutions, but we likely do know where to find them. For more information visit our website ASKNCDC.com.
