Deadline nears for GRE economic gardening program

Rochester Business Journal
May 7, 2014

Second-stage companies have until Friday to register for the Greater Rochester Enterprise Inc.’s economic gardening program.

The program, in its second year, provides free assistance to companies looking to expand.

“We offer the economic gardening program because we know that at least 80 percent of our economic growth will come from companies already located right here in our region,” GRE president and CEO Mark Peterson said in a statement.

“Economic gardening represents a new way of thinking about supporting growth companies and allows us to provide the right second-stage companies with access to resources they need to grow here.”

Eligible companies must be for-profit and privately held. They must have their headquarters here, be operating in the Rochester area with five to 100 employees, and generate $700,000 to $50 million in annual revenue, officials said.

Up to 40 businesses will be chosen to participate, officials said.
