Choose Westport!

Do you lead a startup? Run an established business? Need a satellite office for your larger organization?

Westport wants you!

Town officials, commercial developers and real estate agents have partnered to launch ChooseWestport.com. The “economic opportunity website” focuses on the benefits of opening a business here.

The site targets small businesses, entrepreneurs and other professionals in the tri-state region. It highlights the benefits of locating (or relocating) in Westport.

ChooseWestport includes sections on “Economic Vitality” (education, credit rating, taxes, transportation, income and wages, real estate); “What’s Possible” (lifestyle, commerce, quality of life, values and education), along with sections for retail, small businesses and “finance businesses” (Kitt Shapiro of the store WEST, Field Trip Snacks co-founders Matt Levey and Tom Donigan, and Saugatuck Financial’s Justin and Christy Charise all provide videos).

The “Concierge” section promises that the “Westport Economic Opportunity Division” will provide assistance in opening a business, and “navigating the operations of town government.”

The Visual Brand — based in Westport — created the website, and will run a digital marketing campaign, including videos.

For more information on ChooseWestport — including joining the partnership — email town operations director Sara Harris: sharris@westportct.gov.
