Small Business Resource Guide

The Bridgeport Regional Business Council consolidated its business recruitment, retention and sustainability planning services into one new program management entity, The Center for Sustainable Business Growth. The Center serves as the program manager for the newly created Eco-Technology Park and works closely with the City of Bridgeport’s Office of Planning & Economic Development and the State of Connecticut’s Department of Economic and Community Development to attract and retain new business and create jobs. The Center For Sustainable Business Growth also works with the economic development departments in the surrounding communities to foster job creation and promote business expansion in the Greater Bridgeport Area.

Managed by Jeff Bishop, this BRBC service can recommend the public and private programs and opportunities available for the region's small businesses.
