Grow YOUR Business

As the business capital of the Richmond Region, Henrico County has many programs aimed to help your business succeed. We at the Henrico EDA would love to talk with you about your business needs to aid in the current and future growth of you company.

  • Coordinating tours of potential properties with real estate agents
  • Evaluating possible grants and tax credits related to capital investment and job creation
  • Tracking progress through various county permitting and review processes such as licenses, finance, inspections, etc.

Expansion Assistance

  • Employee Recruiting
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Facility, Utilities and Equipment Needs
  • Exporting and International Trade
  • Local and State Government Interactions
