Professional Business Advisory Services to Help Your Business Grow
LAEGC can help expand your business. We identify and finance your business expansion. We produce and deliver Maine’s largest annual business networking event, the Maine Business 2 Business Trade Show, designed to attract business and customers here to LA from all over Maine and beyond. As we travel the globe we can connect you to new markets or business opportunities.
LAEGC works closely with numerous Lewiston and Auburn economic development professionals and regularly reaches out to and visits businesses in LA Maine. Our business visitation program is focused on Business Expansion and Retention in LA (BEAR LA). BEAR LA visits are designed to let us learn more about your business, your plans, your opportunities and to put you in touch with resources that may help. BEAR LA also helps us identify mid and long-term trends in the community that might be addressed in our ongoing strategic economic development.
