Northwest Kentucky Forward has identified the creation and growth of a strong, on-going existing business program as a key strategy to creating wealth and opportunity for the region. The primary target for this program are those existing manufacturers, distribution centers, and service providers who qualify to participate in Kentucky economic development assistance programs.
This program has three objectives:
1) retain existing manufacturers, distribution centers, and service providers;
2) expand employment and increase investment in capital and workforce by these businesses;
3) promote the existing business base as the area's number one recruitment tool and source of both lead generation and product improvement.
The leadership of Northwest Kentucky Forward believes strongly in working with our existing companies that a position has been created to focus exclusively on their needs.
