How To Use State And Local Incentives To Grow Your Business
Brandon Baumbach, business development manager at Grand Forks Region Economic Development, will offer his perspective on how the manufacturing industry has evolved over the last several years and discuss the opportunities his organization provides to those working in the manufacturing sector. Specifically, he will discuss the various business support programs that utilize exemptions, subsidies and tax credits to incentivize investment. His presentation will also cover programs developed to help employers retain workforce, as well as how to alleviate the extra costs associated with a tight labor market. Ryan Barstad, co-owner of Arc Metal Forming, will then share how his company has implemented some of the programs offered by Grand Forks Region Economic Development and the benefits that have come from doing so.
