Additionally, local company FLS Banners has taken space in the Business Development Center to house new equipment for their business growth, and military contracting consultant Dan McCluskey has taken short-term office space in the incubator.

As of April 30, the Door County Business Development Center will have around 4,000 square feet of light manufacturing space available, along with one interior office of 315 square feet. The Business Development Center helps reduce business start-up overhead costs by offering affordable rents and providing free or low-cost access to shared facilities, services and equipment, including: truck docks; forklift; high-speed internet access, copier, fax and mail services; and a private conference room. Eligible clients include new or young companies looking for support to get a strong start in business.

Center tenants may also qualify for special business incentive and finance programs; low interest loans; business finance training and consulting; tax incentives; and financing eligibility and application assistance. Tenants typically graduate from the Center within three to five years. The center is currently home to fifteen businesses with 55 full time equivalent employees. Eighteen businesses have graduated from the Center to date, creating 80 jobs.
