Working together for a vibrant future. It's how we do business in Metro Denver.
The Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation (Metro Denver EDC), the nation's first regional economic development entity, operates under a Code of Ethics. The Metro Denver EDC and its predecessor organizations – the Greater Denver Corporation and the Metro Denver Network – have been working and acting regionally since the mid-1980s.
Today, the Metro Denver region is recognized nationally and internationally for its collaborative approach toward economic development. In fact, author Jennifer Bradley, a fellow at the Brookings Institution, singled out Metro Denver in early 2014 as a model for a new era of regional politics.
With community-wide support for the arts, bipartisan dialogue among the region's mayors, and proactive efforts to attract major sporting events, teamwork and enthusiasm abound in Metro Denver.
