Retention + Expansion

Keeping Santa Clarita Valley companies successful.

The BEAR Program is designed to address the needs of existing businesses throughout the Santa Clarita Valley. With the help of our BEAR partners, each year SCVEDC will provide no-cost, confidential one-on-one business assistance visits with primary industry employers. Information gathered through the BEAR program will be used to locate potential business expansion opportunities, identify at-risk companies and develop appropriate assistance solutions. Information will also be analyzed on an aggregate basis to allow the SCVEDC to share with area decision-makers ways that they can continue improve the regional business climate.

To learn more about the BEAR Program or to schedule a consultation, contact Christopher Girdwood, SCVEDC Manager of Business Outreach and Communications at (661) 288-4407 or via email at
