Hanover’s Perspective

Business First Hanover 2010-2011 Annual Report now available

Business First Hanover is the local business assistance program aimed at supporting local companies and ensuring that they are provided every opportunity to grow right here in Hanover County. The business retention and expansion program is part of a regional collaborative effort that includes the Greater Richmond Partnership, the City of Richmond, and the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover and Henrico.

As part of the local business outreach effort, the Business First team conducts face-to-face interviews with business owners and CEOs. Information gathered during these interviews helps to identify opportunities and threats as well as direct resources and information to businesses in need.
