Support for Existing Businesses

Working with local businesses to retain jobs, support expansion efforts and build long-term business success within the area is the primary focus of our economic development strategy.

To accomplish this goal the Troy Development Council has partnered with nearly thirty other cities throughout the Miami Valley to create BUSINESS FIRST FOR A GREATER DAYTON REGION. The Business First initiative is a highly effective outreach program that utilizes advanced business retention technologies to identify challenges facing local business managers.

Working through a volunteer group of peer business leaders, the BUSINESS FIRST program not only builds long-term informational relationships with local businesses, but more importantly, creates a rapid response team of area support organizations to address existing business issues or to assist in avoiding future operational challenges.

Local businesses that have not previously participated in the BUSINESS FIRST program are encouraged to contact the Troy Development Council.
