It is no surprise that Governor Hickenlooper calls Grand Junction an anchor for Colorado’s outdoor recreation industry. Colorado’s Grand Valley offers opportunity and lifestyle most never even imagine. With an average of over 250 days of sunshine and the ability to pave trails from snowcapped mountains to the desert in the same day, Grand Junction residents proudly blur the lines between work and play.
The Grand Junction Economic Partnership (GJEP) is the official economic development agency for Colorado’s Grand Valley. GJEP works to recruit and retain businesses in the cities of Grand Junction and Fruita, the town of Palisade and surrounding regions. As a private non-profit incorporated organization, GJEP provides free business services and operates with the support of generous investors and economic development partners.
Robin will discuss the region’s strategies and successes of building their local economy in partnership with the outdoor industry.
