The Crawford County Development Authority hosts one of the first small business incubator projects in the United States.
In 2006, as President of Polywad, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of high-quality shotgun shells, I began looking to relocate my business from the small, rented space we were operating in to a larger, more modern facility. We got involved with the Crawford County Development Authority, who helped us finance a building and land in their Industrial Park. This new location allowed us to expand to do more research and development and go after more contracts. The Development Authority has been terrific to work with. They have helped us in every way from dealing with laws and regulations, assisting with financing, and facilitating partnerships locally and regionally that improve our business. The Development Authority is always looking out for us.Mr. Jay Menefee
I began quilting as a hobby, but it grew to become a small, home-based business specializing in longarm machine quilting . As it grew and grew, my home could no longer support my business. I needed more space at a low cost with a lot of flexibility and the Crawford County Development Authority was there to help. I began renting a small space in their business incubator to manufacture custom quilts and have since expanded, renting additional space to conduct quilting classes and now online sales. The incubator has given me a place to meet with clients, teach my students, and continue to grow my business with the hope of adding some employees. It’s an eye opening experience moving from hobby to business, but the Development Authority has helped and guided me through it all in every way I’ve needed.Ms. Dianne Dye
