    About the BusinessFirst! Program

    Dear Business Executives:

    Montgomery County's outreach and business retention program, Business First! For A Greater Dayton Region is our commitment to making Montgomery County the most competitive location for business.  We need your input, however, to make Montgomery County the location of choice for businesses like yours.

    That's why we created the Business First! Program.  The BusinessFirst! Program uses a customer-focused approach to link businesses with resources that help businesses stay and grow in the community.  The BusinessFirst! team is a coordinated group of more than 80 economic development, workforce development and government agencies who are ready to assist firms in meeting their corporate objectives.

    Our trained Outreach Specialists are asking for your views and opinions on a wide range of topics that affect your company and your business.  What do you like about doing business in Montgomery County?  How can we improve the business climate here?
    Business First! gives a business owner a single point of contact for a wide range of assistance that is available from local, county, regional, state and federal agencies. 

    When an Outreach Specialist calls, please agree to meet...we're sure that it will be time well spent. Our BusinessFirst! outreach team has visited over 2,000 companies from small, medium and large companies.  If you need to talk to someone about available programs or even a problem, contact BusinessFirst! at the Montgomery County Economic Development Office - 937-225-4642.  It's your direct link to local government and its resources.  Learn more about BusinessFirst!

    Thank you for being a part of our business community.  With your help, we'll continue to make Montgomery County work for you.
