Get Involved


A partnership with Jeffco EDC protects your Company’s investment by securing future opportunities, resources, and removing potential roadblocks to your success. And most importantly, it helps us achieve the mission of creating access to quality jobs for all residents.

Your investment reflects a belief that economic development goes beyond just a simple jobs program, it is more than just growing the capital investment numbers, but rather a mindset that centers on enhancing the prosperity and quality of life through quality job access.

Our business and community values champion that sustainability goals and economic development are not mutually exclusive, but complementary. Growth and development are an essential element of healthy communities and our leadership can guide those processes in a deliberate and thoughtful manner. It is a belief that the healthiest communities start with the cornerstone of access to quality jobs for all residents.
