Economic Development Week 2021

MPEDC Wraps Up Economic Development Week 2021 with Announcements

MPEDC wrapped up the 2021 Economic Development Week (May 9-15) with TWO exciting announcements and some volunteerism:

1) ANNOUNCEMENT: Earlier this month, City Council voted to transfer a Revolving Loan Fund valued at $234,000 to MPEDC to assist small & emerging businesses. The fund had only been used once in the past 20 years. MPEDC is excited to put these funds to work! Stay tuned for official roll-out.
2) ANNOUNCEMENT: MPEDC teamed up with the AMAZING SizeUp team to roll out a new business intelligence tool to help small businesses. MPEDC’s tool is customized to include regional data from 11 surrounding communities to give our businesses the best comparative data possible. Temporary Link (will be on our website soon): The tool will also be available in the Small Business section of our website.

3) VOLUNTEERISM: This week, all MPEDC staff volunteered with other community members to role play in the Chamber of Commerce’s “Nonprofit Day: Life Simulation” for the 2021 Mount Pleasant Leadership Class. The simulation is hosted by the National Credit Union & the Mount Pleasant Texas Chamber of Commerce to bring awareness to poverty & decision-making behavior of varying socio-economic groups under simulated financial pressures. What an empowering and eye-opening experience for our future community leaders! Mount Pleasant has an amazing nonprofit community! Thank you for the opportunity to participate, Mount Pleasant Texas Chamber of Commerce.
