    PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University and the Grafton County Economic Development Council hosted a June 17 meeting of local and state officials in discussing Grafton County’s economic development efforts.

    The main focus of the meeting was the progress of the Enterprise Center at Plymouth, now under construction at 149 North Main St., which is a business incubator supporting entrepreneurship, small businesses, and economic development in central New Hampshire by providing services to new and existing businesses.

    The Enterprise Center at Plymouth is a partnership between the Grafton County Economic Development Council and Plymouth State University. The GCEDC is providing the physical location and building, using $2 million in federal, state and corporate funding.

    PSU is providing incubator staffing, along with business and consulting services, making the ECP a “one stop shopping” location for businesses throughout the region seeking advice and counseling.
