Lots of people will tell you that New Castle County is a good place to build a business. New Castle County wants to show you — via data, demographics and stats — why, and how you can make educated business decisions in the county.
The project, NCC Innovates, was unveiled at The Mill shortly before the Labor Day holiday with a demo by Tamarra Morris, director of the New Castle County Office of Economic Development. County Executive Matt Meyer, who discussed implementing the project even before he was elected in 2016, also spoke, sharing his experience as a young entrepreneur long before becoming an elected official.
