“The Illinois Broadband Innovation Fund Grant will allow the Dot World Group to significantly accelerate planned product enhancements to Escape Locally,” said Jim Zimmerman, President of Dot World Group, LLC. “Because of the grant, we will begin expansion of Escape Locally beyond the Southern Illinois Region into Northeast Central Illinois and Central Illinois Regions in October 2012. These product enhancements and expanded multi-regional capabilities will facilitate further growth of Escape Locally-based ecommerce programs throughout the State of Illinois.”
