Bismarck Mandan Chamber EDC focuses on intentional, local economic success
The Bismarck Mandan Chamber EDC focuses on job creation, investment stimulation economic expansion of the Bismarck-Mandan area through the economic development efforts listed below:
Support of Entrepreneurs
As a “feeder” rather than a “leader” in this area, the Chamber EDC seeks to develop the community’s entrepreneurs by supporting events to bring them together and address specific gaps, such as finance or real estate.
New Business Attraction
The Chamber EDC has identified three primary targets for our new business attraction efforts: value-added energy, value-added agriculture and equipment manufacturing. These industries provide the greatest chance for success in our region.
The Chamber EDC is engaged in focused and flexible initiatives to attract outside talent to the Bismarck-Mandan community to fill thousands of local open jobs.
Business Retention & Expansion (BRE)
The Chamber EDC facilitates a formal BRE Program in which staff conducts one-on-one visits with existing companies to proactively identify and address issues affecting a particular company and impacting our business community.
To retain the talent that currently calls Bismarck-Mandan home, the Chamber EDC facilitates multiple workforce development programs focused on experiential learning in K-12 and higher education.
