Commerce Lexington’s Economic Development division places significant emphasis on all phases of economic development, including: assisting local business retention and expansion, encouraging entrepreneurial activity, and recruiting new business investment.

Our efforts are aimed at helping businesses owners succeed by equipping them with the tools they need to grow or expand their business.

The Lexington economic development team, formally known as the Bluegrass Business Development Partnership, works collaboratively with our partners - the University of Kentucky, the Small Business Development Center and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government - to assist companies in creating jobs and investment in our community, which creates a higher quality of life for our citizens.
