Springfield, MA – The Latino Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) is thrilled to announce the Grand Opening of their new Western Massachusetts office in Downtown Springfield. Having twenty-seven coaches to support new and emerging businesses in all their needs and providing micro-grants to assist with start up costs will go along way to help ensure success for these new entrepreneurs. In addition, the new facility is available to the business community for meetings, co-workspace, and teleconferences. We will also be providing the new businesses with an opportunity to participate in a digital business neighborhood. The headquarters will be the home of the “PeoplesBank” business lounge and offer the entrepreneurs a comfortable place to have a meeting, check emails, and grab refreshments from the café.
“Having the opportunity to enhance the environment for current micro-businesses and new startups, looking to grow and learn is exactly what we have planned to do with our LEDC headquarters. Our innovative relationship with our coaches and business partners ensures that budding entrepreneurs have an eco-system to help support their startup.” LEDC Director of Operations, Andrew Melendez

In addition to the Grand Opening, Partners for Community, the management company for the LEDC, Brightwood Development Corporation, New England Farm Workers Council, The Corporation for Public Management and New England Partners in Faith will be unveiling the new logos for the agencies.
“Our logo and branding effort has been timed to support the rollout of the LEDC…we are excited to position PfC and our affiliates to take on the challenges of a post covid world…we are here to give our community a helping hand up so that they can fully participate in a challenging world. It is imperative that we continue the work of our President/CEO Herbie Flores, who has for the past 50 years worked tirelessly on behalf of the community to help families and individuals break the cycle of poverty, and equip them with the skills to succeed and thrive.” PfC Executive Director, Daniel Knapik
