Established in 1983, HCDC, Inc., formerly Hamilton County Development Co. Inc., helps build businesses and promote job creation in 3 simple ways: business incubation, business lending, and economic development services. Born out of a need to create jobs to counter a shrinking manufacturing sector, HCDC has nurtured over 300 resident companies, financed over $1 Billion in projects and helped attract and create tens of thousands of local jobs. You can learn more from the Annual Report.
Here’s how we do it:
- HCDC Business Incubation– HCDC’s top-rated business incubator at the Business Center helps entrepreneurs launch innovative and scalable businesses through intensive business coaching, programming, connections, and flexible work environments in one of the largest and longest-running incubators in the Midwest.
- HCDC Business Lending– HCDC finances the expansions of growing businesses through the SBA 504 loan program and other long-term, fixed-rate financing tools used to purchase real estate and equipment while retaining critical working capital.
- HCDC Economic Development– HCDC strengthens communities by retaining, expanding, and attracting businesses to Hamilton County, Ohio with financing, incentives, and expert technical assistance.
These three program areas foster business growth by financing business expansions, supporting further community investment, and providing assistance to entrepreneurs. As a not-for-profit economic development company, HCDC’s mission is to be a driving force behind business development.
