Start It Up Delaware: nurture employers

Creating a Nurturing Environment for Employers: Readying a workforce for the world we now live in is a key part of making Delaware an attractive place to do business. So is providing a nurturing environment for new entrepreneurs. Let's start at the beginning. Businesses that start here are more likely to stay here. The challenge is to get the people, the ideas, and the capital together as we build The Start-Up State.

Inspired by successful models across the country, local entrepreneurs have created Start It Up Delaware. This public-private partnership will serve as a hub for entrepreneurial activity with support from Delaware's financial, accounting, legal, and real estate communities. It will build relationships with the University of Delaware, Delaware State and Delaware Tech, among other institutions of higher education.

Expand manufacturing; reform permitting; help small business

Historically, Delaware has been defined by what we make. Manufacturing jobs have provided a ladder to economic independence for countless families and they must remain part of our economic future. Our Delaware Manufacturing Association will build on effective past outreach to local manufacturers on topics ranging from lean manufacturing techniques to energy savings programs. Together, we will work to develop and implement new ways to expand manufacturing jobs.

We will stay focused on the particula issues facing our small businesses. That means continuing our efforts to make permitting more efficient and predictable. It also means recognizing that one of the most important assets of any small business is its workforce. Too often, small business owners have trouble negotiating and paying for healthcare coverage for their workforce, or attracting the best workers when they don't. We will implement the new federal health care act in a way that most helps our small businesses.
