About

Accelerate. Elevate. Innovate.

As a leader in educational, economic and community development, LCCC is uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between Northeast Ohio’s local talent pipeline and our region’s job demands. Our goal is to connect the dots between talent development and economic development by fueling the type of business growth that attracts capital, creates jobs and positively impacts our economy.

To further this goal, we developed Business Growth Services, a portfolio of programs, resources, technologies and expertise that can be tailored to support businesses at any stage of growth.

Why Business Growth Services?

LCCC’s academic role in our community is to build the skilled talent of tomorrow’s workforce. As a logical extension of that role, LCCC Business Growth Services connects companies with the right talent, tools and strategies to drive sustainable growth.

Our Business Growth Services team works closely with local entrepreneurs and area businesses to design employer-driven solutions that successfully help companies start up, scale up and tap into new levels of growth. With a focus on transforming innovative ideas into profitable businesses, we partner with companies throughout Northeast Ohio to encourage entrepreneurialism, stimulate innovation, accelerate commercialization, facilitate job creation and make a real impact on our regional economy.

How we help

LCCC Business Growth Services are designed in partnership with regional economic development organizations to provide employer-driven solutions that accelerate innovation, job creation and business growth across Northeast Ohio. Together, we connect Northeast Ohio businesses with valuable access to:

  • Employer-driven programs for business strategy and planning

We offer a full range of services to assist Northeast Ohio entrepreneurs and businesses in Talent Planning and Development, Business Coaching, Business Funding, Advanced Manufacturing, Technology Commercialization and Space.
