Vail Valley Means Business site launches online today
AVON — The Vail Valley Partnership, the valley’s community development organization, announced today that it has launched a new county-wide economic development and business services website at http://www.VailValleyMeansBusiness.com. The site is the new online home of Vail Valley Economic Development, a business unit of the Vail Valley Partnership.
Jeremy Rietmann, the Partnership’s business development director, calls the website “a key piece in telling a more comprehensive story about living and working in the Vail Valley.”
“This site enables us to share what’s incredible and rewarding about doing business in Eagle County, while also being candid about potential pitfalls, so that prospective businesses and entrepreneurs are well-equipped to build and sustain successful business operations in our mountain communities,” Rietmann added.
Access to Essential Services
The new website offers easy access to essential business services, local economic information and is targeted to local businesses and entrepreneurs as well as prospective businesses considering doing work in the Vail Valley.
The new site is part of the Partnership’s efforts to enhance the quality and availability of relevant information and resources to support private enterprise and economic vitality throughout Eagle County.
The mission of Vail Valley Economic Development is to promote the long-term economic health of Eagle County and solidify an economic base that is strong, diverse and resilient.
Six Core Objectives
Vail Valley Economic Development’s work is guided by the Eagle County Economic Development Plan, which outlines six core objectives to position Eagle County’s economy for long-term success:
• Build a business-friendly Eagle County.
• Create and market an Eagle County business brand.
• Retain, grow and recruit businesses.
• Protect our natural environment.
• Expand opportunity in our leading sectors (tourism and recreation, health and wellness and creative industries).
• Provide support for a quality workforce (affordable housing, education, transportation and health).
Partnership president and CEO Chris Romer says the site will “help position the valley in a meaningful way to attract new businesses that will further diversify our economy and help local businesses and entrepreneurs access supportive resources at the local, regional and state level.”
