Workforce and Training
Companies need great talent to compete and survive in a global economy. The BizConnect partnership supports Pearland employers by sharing the resources necessary to help employees grow and retain the key knowledge you need in your business. Whatever the training need is, the BizConnect Team will work with you to bring a suitable business training partner to create solutions. For example, training assistance is available in such areas as:
- Computer Skills

- Team and Management Development
Relocation and Expansion Incentives
BizConnect can assist qualified businesses with funding for infrastructure, or permanent improvements. We can assist with local and state incentives for businesses that create and maintain primary jobs. Incentive packages are determined by type of business, quality of jobs created or retained, wages paid, capital investment and overall community impact. We are ready to work with you to identify the incentives available for your business expansion.
BizConnect acts as a facilitator for businesses and developers looking to invest in Pearland. The team can handle questions, meeting coordination and communication as the project moves through the development process. BizConnect will work directly with the business development team, including architects, engineers and planners, to minimize project delays and maximize the business’ visibility on the project’s deadlines and expected milestones.
