The New Hampshire Division of Economic Development—which includes its subagencies, the NH Business Resource Center (BRC) and the International Trade Resource Center (ITRC)—acts as a single point of contact for businesses at all stages in their growth cycle. They pride themselves on their capacity for innovation. According to their website, they don't do business as usual. Instead they take a "no bull" approach and create innovative programs and services that support businesses in New Hampshire and those thinking of relocating or expanding to the state. Other good news in this challenging economy: the majority of their programs and services are provided at no cost.
In addition to providing New Hampshire businesses assistance in a broad spectrum of areas ranging from licensing and financing to permitting and workforce training, BRC works in conjunction with federal, regional, local and other State agencies, as well as with private sector partners, to deliver a comprehensive array of services.
