The Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation’s (LVEDC) Business Outreach Program seeks to serve as a single point-of-contact for all of your business needs, helping to identify resources to assist you in succeeding in today’s competitive environment.
Led by LVEDC Director of Business Outreach Melody Bradford, the BOP uses a customer-oriented approach to economic development designed to link Lehigh Valley businesses to resources throughout the community that will help their business become more profitable.
Several Lehigh Valley businesses have benefited from assistance by the BOP, and we wanted you to hear directly from them. Below are just a few testimonials from business leaders discussing the program.
