Build Business Success

Business Retention & Expansion

While an increasing population and new business development contribute to our recent economic growth, Elevate Douglas Economic Partnership believes it is the success of existing businesses that boosts the local economy. By maintaining open lines of communication and building enduring relationships, we seek to aid our existing job creators as they hire more employees, add locations, invest in facilities and continue to give back to the community.
