and challenges to ensure a vibrant business community. Established by the ICEDC, the ICEDC
Foundation is a 501(c)3 that supports specific economic development initiatives that create jobs,
investment, and resources to minimize the tax burden to the local community.

Our History
In 2017, a strategic decision was made by community leaders to combine Mooresville-South Iredell
Economic Development and Statesville Regional Development into one organization to serve all
of Iredell County and its municipalities. As a result, our communities have benefited from shared
resources and collaboration through enhanced marketing, workforce development, and expanded
program offering to small businesses.


Through business recruitment, expansion, redevelopment, and workforce development, we welcome new businesses with a likeminded approach to community as we enhance the quality of Business, Life, and Location in Iredell County. Together, we’ll achieve goals, grow, and prosper.
