Existing Company Program


LNEDC developed a vibrant existing industry program in 2009 visiting companies in Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville on a weekly basis. 

  • LNEDC works with partners in the region to respond to companies' needs and suggestions following each company visitation.
  • The focus of the existing industry program is encouraging existing industry to stay and expand in the Lake Norman Region.
  • At the request of company leaders, LNEDC facilitates quarterly Lake Norman Region Executive Roundtable luncheons so business leaders have the opportunity to interact with peer leadership on a regular basis.
