We continue to create one of the best global business environments to inspire ongoing public / private collaboration for the continuous improvement of the Denver South economic region.

Economic development can mean many things and as a result it has caused confusion about what economic development organizations actually do. We have realized through the content development on our new website that we, as economic development professionals, were making too many assumptions that the average business professional has an understanding of what it is that we do. We have since begun to recreate our website content with the intent to inform while avoiding the pitfalls of over utilizing economic development terminology.
