COACT Has Been Working With Leaders in Economic Development Since Our Inception

Whether your goal is to create more exposure for existing programs and incentives to a current local business market for retention purposes, to attract new businesses to the region, or a mixture of both – we can help. Most economic development organizations are tight strapped with little resources to do a big job. COACT is the answer to this – for the cost of an individual’s monthly salary, COACT steps on board with an arsenal of growth experts in strategy, research, design, outreach, and marketing functions to meet your community growth and retention goals.

To put it plainly, we deliver on the hope for success.
