Schedule a visit with our Business Action Team

Sometimes the biggest challenge for small business is not identifying needs, but rather knowing where to go for that assistance and what to ask for. Working through the economic development system to get support without interrupting business operations can be difficult and overwhelming.

Through the Business Action Team operated by the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership, Erie County businesses have an advocate whose responsibility it is to know how to leverage resources to encourage growth. Working with the economic development affiliates, this free business assistance program can address hiring, training, marketing, financing and other expansion needs. Best of all, the program is completely free.

  • Save Time
    Business Action Team professionals save business owners valuable time by providing them with relevant information based on their needs.

  • Navigate the “System”
    The economic development system can be difficult to navigate. BAT professionals serve as a case manager for the business so that it gets the full benefit of the programs offered by the region’s service providers.

  • Make Connections
    The connections made through the BAT program are an invaluable asset for future business endeavors.

  • No Cost
    BAT is free. There is no cost to meet with a BAT professional. Membership in the Erie Regional Chamber is also not required.
