A Message from Rob Astorino
The County Exec welcomes you to our 2014 Economic Development Guide.
Dear Business Leader,
Whether you’re a Fortune 500 company, a neighborhood store or a biotech start-up, Westchester County wants to be the place where you do business.
Our local economy is among the most resilient and adaptive, and Westchester County boasts one of the best resources anywhere – intellectual capital in the form of smart people who can take ideas and make them work. That creative energy and entrepreneurial spirit is what keeps us on our toes, and way ahead of the crowd.
We are not perfect, but we are committed to improving every day. From taxes to regulations, our philosophy is to create a place where people and businesses can prosper.
As you’ll see in the pages of this year’s Economic Development Guide, Westchester is open for your business.
Learn about all the advantages the county can offer and read the stories of people who found their own commercial niche in Westchester. Discover news-making trends across various industries, and get the latest on the schools, housing and cultural offerings that set Westchester apart.
Need a little assistance? Westchester’s Office of Economic Development can connect you with the information, resources and incentives your business needs to stay, expand or come to Westchester County.
