Business retention and attraction
By Dustin Findley
The Economic Development Commission (EDC) is organizing and will host a networking event for venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and high tech professionals to raise awareness of Milpitas as a suitable place to locate business.
"We believe it's a very important activity. Milpitas is an important, strategic town in Silicon Valley yet does not have many start-up companies," explained Chair Dhaval Brahmbhatt to City Council.
Start-ups and high-tech companies typically see growth which leads to job creation.
The EDC plans to hold the event either in January or March 2010.
