Economic Development Authority awards business assistance to Computer Concepts
The Economic Development Authority (EDA) of James City County is pleased to announce another grant recipient of the Business Assistance Program - Computer Concepts. The $5,000 loan will convert to a grant if conditions of a five-year performance based agreement are met.
Computer Concepts has two locations including a headquarters in New Town that is fully outfitted with a state-of-the-art repair facility. Computer Concepts is capable of supporting the highest level of repairs on laptops and desktop PCs as well as all Mac computers. Computer Concepts also fixes many other devices from gaming consoles to mobile devices.
The New Town facility also has a full-scale training room where they conduct over 30 technology training classes from basic use to instructions on using iPhone or Android devices to the essentials of Internet marketing.
The Computer Concepts retail center carries a full line of new computing devices including components to the latest computers and technologies from Acer, Google, custom built computers and more.
Computer Concepts is the fourth County business to receive assistance through the Business Assistance Program since its launch in 2009. The primary purpose of the program is to assist with the retention, expansion, relocation and development of smaller businesses in James City County. As an economic development tool for the County, the intent of the Business Assistance Program is to create and retain quality employment opportunities, retain and expand the tax base, and thereby retain and grow those preferred smaller businesses which possess the qualities and attributes set forth in the 2008 Business Climate Task Force report.
The EDA funds the Business Assistance Program with administrative fees earned by the EDA through its revenue bond financing program.
