In the City of New Bedford, Massachusetts, leaders in the public and private sectors are determined to see New Bedford prosper. Like their counterparts in other mid-size cities across America, these leaders realize that business investment is essential to the overall development of a thriving local economy.
The goal of the New Bedford Economic Development Council is to turn the ideas and hopes of that leadership into solid results by offering real services to businesses through loan and incentive programs, technical assistance, and workshops. While marketing New Bedford worldwide, the NBEDC is also actively involved with city planning and development, and helps businesses take advantage of the growth opportunities the City offers.
