The new site,, provides tools for entrepreneurs to explore their business ideas and the regional resources available to support them, map their ideas, and connect and collaborate with others to develop their business concepts into reality.

The website helps to foster cooperative relationships that strengthen the success of all the businesses in a network.

The business and entrepreneurial users of the site is diverse and growing. The more existing businesses and business ideas that are placed on the map, the more dynamic the site becomes. Take a few minutes to explore and share your business concept.
