Business Resource Network

The Business Resource Network (BRN) in Tuscarawas County is a unique and collaborative initiative developed to help businesses grow and thrive in their communities.  Knowing that businesses often do not have the time and resources to access the assistance they need, the BRN uses an efficient approach to learn more about your business and help you access the resources, assistance and services needed in the most efficient and productive way possible.

As your single point of contact, we are excited to have the opportunity to meet with local business leaders and learn more about the companies in our area. We look forward to continuing to connect local businesses with the resources available and assist with their current challenges and opportunities.

Please find a comprehensive list of our organization partners at this link:, and a complete explanation of the BRN at this link:
