As our 50th Anniversary year comes to a close, we wish to thank you for your support throughout this special year! As a member of LDF your annual contribution allowed us to continue our mission of business recruitment, development and expansion for the Laredo and Webb County community.
2016 was another landmark year for progress, as we exceeded our goals for landed (completed) projects, direct capital investment, ($391,600,000) and new jobs created (813).
In addition, the LDF along with its community partners is spearheading a new business incubator and international business accelerator project that will be housed in a 6,000 sq.ft. space in downtown Laredo. The MileOne International Business Assistance Center will encourage creativity, communication, and collaboration for entrepreneurs and provide personal mentoring and training within a shared co-working or individual office space. We look forward to the grand-opening by March 2017.
2016 was also a banner year for LDF signature events and recognitions:
Please open the attachments for information on membership and the progress and accomplishments of each LDF division: Industrial and Business Attraction, MileOne International Business Assistance Center, Special Projects and Administration.

As a private, non-profit, your membership is an investment in the development of a sustainable business environment in our community.
