COCOA BEACH, Florida – August 29, 2014 Novel Engineering joins the Space Coast Economic Development Commission (EDC) as an Investor at the Chairman's Level to help support a strong public-private partnership that addresses crucial business climate issues, bolsters the local economy, and promotes the Space Coast area's competitive advantages.

Novel's Misty Marot, CEO and Shannon Terry, Director of Marketing & Sales will serve on the Board of Directors and Aerospace, Aviation and Defense Council for the commission. "This is an exciting opportunity for Novel to reach our goal of providing support for our community by helping build a stronger local economy that will produce job opportunities and increase the area's overall GDP," says Mrs. Marot.

The Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast is an innovative, countywide, public-private not-for-profit partnership between the Brevard County Commission and the Space Coast business community. Business leaders, chambers of commerce, local and state government leaders, and community organizations contribute to the overall mission of the EDC.

The EDC is dedicated to attracting new business and investment and expanding existing industry throughout the Space Coast, influencing change on government laws and regulations affecting economic development, promoting the Space Coast to encourage new investment, supporting efforts of Space Coast military installations, and relaying new programs and procedures to assist manufacturing and high tech companies.

The EDC guides its program of work within three primary strategic priorities:

  • Maintain a Targeted Industry Focus - The EDC concentrates its business development efforts on five industries that serve as core drivers of the Space Coast economy: aerospace and aviation, advanced communications, electronics, homeland security and defense, and emerging technologies.
  • Advocate for a Competitive Business Environment - The EDC pursues advocacy efforts based on their ability to achieve economic competitiveness.
  • Engage Community Leaders - The EDC educates volunteers, community leaders and elected officials on the Space Coast’s many competitive advantages, enabling these leaders to serve as economic development advocates throughout the community.

To ensure the Space Coast remains globally competitive, the EDC must maintain a keen awareness of the latest industry trends, business intelligence, and competitive advantages. Our program of work molds this knowledge into strategic action items geared toward specific measurables. The program focuses our resources on identifying and promoting our unique qualities, strengths, and advantages and incorporates multiple methodologies to generate and increase top-of-mind awareness.
