Bringing companies and people together to build strong professional relationships is one of the EDC’s most important functions. By providing the entrepreneurial community with industry linkages, robust capabilities, and specialized services we propel companies towards commercialization and growth. We are able to provide these high-quality programs through the generous support of our partners and sponsors. As our entrepreneurs continue to face a myriad of business challenges that require guidance and advice from reputable companies, we are eager to grow our sponsorship program with you in mind.
