Current businesses in the region are integral partners and generate the majority of our project wins, which is why OhioSE has an aggressive business retention and expansion (BR&E) program. Our BR&E program focuses on existing businesses in our targeted industries. BR&E visits typically focus on a business’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. These meetings occur on an annual basis in collaboration with our local economic development partners. Our shared objective is to remove barriers and open up opportunities for our businesses.
As the JobsOhio regional partner organization for eastern and southern Ohio, we have relationships with federal, state and local partners that allow us to problem-solve for our businesses. The OhioSE project management team oftentimes assists with utility, workforce, regulatory, financial or technical challenges by working collaboratively with our partner organizations. If you have an issue please reach out to your county and regional project manager to see if our team is able to assist!
