Welcome to the Warren Business Exchange
The Warren Business Exchange, a program of Warren Redevelopment and Planning Corporation (WRAP), recognizes that small businesses are the economic driver within the city and offers free business-support services to entrepreneurs in Warren, Ohio.
If you are a long-time business owner in Warren, or an individual with a great idea, we are here to help. Our belief is that typical entrepreneurs have a vision and know their product or service extremely well, but need to build a foundation of strength in five key management areas of their business - accounting, finance, marketing, sales and human resources.
Our doors are always open for those seeking advice and assistance. We offer communication tools among members of the business community by hosting seminars and workshops regarding business-related topics, as well as information sharing via social media tools. Contact us to be added to our email list for information about upcoming events.
The core service we offer to local entrepreneurs is membership into our business incubator. Membership into the incubator includes the benefits of office space and ongoing support services.

- needs assessment
- financial analysis

Members benefit from the following expanded support:
