Discovering More About The Agency

It’s been said not to judge a book by its cover. That long-standing adage can be applied to more than just books though. And in the case of The Agency, I think it applies perfectly.

While there are plenty of established professionals, both in and out of Broome County, who know what The Agency is, there are a myriad of Millennials—whether students, professionals, but especially burgeoning entrepreneurs—that still aren’t sure what exactly The Agency’s purpose is, or more importantly, what they can offer

The default description of the ‘Industrial Development Agency,’ doesn’t even begin to describe everything The Agency does for business on a smaller scale.

While part of the core mission is to help bring large, multi-million dollar projects like the Dick’s Sporting Goods Distribution Center and the Southern Tier High Technology Incubator to fruition, this is just one part of The Agency’s portfolio. I think in all the excitement that comes with those grand projects, what The Agency does for small business and entrepreneurs can get overlooked.

Start and grow your business in The Center, our small-business incubator in Downtown Binghamton where affordable creative, office, and meeting space await.

Expand your business with the help of multiple funds The Agency has access to, such as the Grow Broome Fund, meant to provide flexible and patient expansion loans to established small businesses, or the Business Development Fund, designed to expand small businesses for the purpose of continued job creation and retention in Broome County.

Use our expertise in this area and its business needs to relocate your company to a strategic location that will undoubtedly aid its continued success.

These are just a few of the ways The Agency can help your small business to begin, grow and thrive in Broome County.

Give us a call and see how they can help you! You could be making the decision that takes your small business to the next level.
