Want to know where to buy local produce? Thinking about starting a business? The Howard County Economic Development Authority (HCEDA) knows information can be hard to come by, and has launched a new website to better promote Howard County.
“When we promote Maryland as an ideal location to start and grow a business, we talk about the unique characteristics of each jurisdiction,” Christian S. Johansson, Secretary of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development said in a statement.
“You can’t talk about Howard County without mentioning its positive business climate, quality of life, well-educated workforce and outstanding schools. The new HCEDA website tells the story of what makes Maryland great and will serve as a terrific resource and business development tool for the State.”
Www.hceda.org is crisp, clean and user-friendly, HCEDA CEO Laura A. Neuman said in a statement. “When we were looking to create a new website,” she said, “We didn’t want visitors to struggle to find information.”
The site is full of useful information, from a section on eating locally, to information on starting, growing or relocating businesses.
“For companies looking to grow or relocate to Howard County, the search often begins online,” County Executive Ken Ulman said in a statement.
“The new HCEDA site makes an excellent first impression and in a matter of a few clicks a business or entrepreneur can find what they need to know about Howard County – from our physical climate to our business climate,” Ulman continued.
“I am pleased with this new economic development site. It accomplishes exactly what we wanted it to and more.”
