Forward Together: Ponca City Development Authority
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WEEK....is this week; right in the middle of small business month. Coincidence? We think not. As the economic development office for our community, staff sees a major link with small business, industry and manufacturing. Quality of life, which includes accessibility to wants and needs (foods, services, etc….), is a huge part of the economic engine. So, let us celebrate our small businesses. All the small businesses. PCDA has showcased industry, retail and trades in our quest to promote Ponca City. Staff loves talking to everyone about our companies and how they collaborate, our unique and interesting retail and service sector and of course, our history.
Check out some of the videos below as we showcase small business in Ponca City. Don’t forget our partners at PIoneer Technology Business Services with the Manufacturing Incubator and their fabulous support staff for all your small business needs from start up to succession planning.
