Local information technology company becomes tenant of flood-relief resource center on Main Street
The Howard County Economic Development Authority (HCEDA) recently opened the doors of Millworks Business Resource Center, located at 8098 Main Street. The center will provide counselors from the Small Business Administration (SBA) and Small Business Development Center (SBDC) along with coworking space and free Wi-Fi for businesses and property owners recovering from the flood. NextLOGiK joins the Ellicott City Partnership as tenants of the office spaces located inside Millworks.
“We are very excited to have NextLOGiK join us at the Millworks Business Resource Center in Ellicott City. They have time and time again found ways to give back and support the Howard County Community, and by taking a new location in Historic Ellicott City they will now be a part of the rebuilding of this town.” – Lawrence Twele, CEO of the Howard County Economic Development Authority
A little over six months after the flood, Historic Ellicott City is continuing to rebuild. A portion of the businesses have reopened, while others undergo major reconstruction. During business hours, Millworks will provide desk space and free Wi-Fi for individuals looking for a place to work and will also serve as a space to host events and trainings for the community.
NextLOGiK will use the space to collaborate with recovering businesses and nonprofits aiding in recovery efforts. With expertise in digital communication, the team at NextLOGiK looks forward to helping these organizations expand their reach and revitalize business.
“Rebuilding efforts for these businesses are far from over, but our community has shown its resiliency and eagerness to help” says Kirk Couser, CEO at NextLOGiK. “By partnering with the Howard County Economic Development Authority we can lend our expertise in digital communication to do our part in revitalizing historic Ellicott City.”
The Millworks Business Resource Center is open Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
