Business to Bruce (BtoB) is a new program to support business development, business recruitment and business enhancement in Bruce County. The program focuses on inspiring, attracting and supporting business owners and entrepreneurs by engaging and mobilizing the local business communities and municipalities, while using County level resources to give the program reach and scale. The Business to Bruce Program identifies the tools best suited to helping local economic development teams achieve their goals for their respective communities. The program establishes and supports entrepreneurial networks in each community and identifies key process barriers to incoming businesses or business expansion. Additionally, it uses targeted business recommendations provided for each community to develop local tactical plans for attracting the right candidates. The Community Business Readiness Grant is to help communities develop the tools and resources for business attraction and expansion, a targeted recruitment and enhancement strategy, and marketing material for the community. This grant matches the municipality cash contribution of $15,000 for the year 2017.
