Montgomery County To Business/MC2B Initiative
This page opens the door to a one-of-a-kind program that expands Montgomery County’s innovative “one-stop shop” approach to economic development. The MC2B initiative offers businesses a single place to obtain and access a full range of business products and services. 

Our restructured Commerce Department utilizes shared financial and operational resources to deliver financial programs, workforce development initiatives, and youth programs throughout the county. This unique partnership between Montgomery County, the Montgomery County Development Corporation, and the other independent authorities operating in the county establishes the Commerce Department as one of the broadest, deepest organizations of its kind in the Commonwealth. 

Explore this website and find a new world of business-related opportunities and services. You are also invited to call the Commerce Department’s toll-free number: 844-2MONTCO.

Help is a click away. Click here to be taken to an easy-to-understand form that will immediately begin the process of getting your business the assistance it needs.
