New-Tech Packaging has been selected to participate in the Economic Gardening Pilot Program, offered by the Economic Development Growth Engine (EDGE) for Memphis and Shelby County.

In response to the unique needs of small businesses, EDGE has identified and invited growth-oriented companies beyond the start-up phase – known as second-stage companies – to apply for the Economic Gardening Program.

The Economic Gardening Program gives these companies access to strategic information gathered with their guidance, alongside the program leaders, and customized for their company. After the program leaders interview companies to identify specific growth issues, they spend about 36 hours with each company over the course of a few weeks as they work quickly to deliver action-oriented information.
