Our Values & Mission

A photo of the EDCUtah staff outside their office in Salt Lake City, Utah.

A private, non-profit organization founded in 1987, the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) is a catalyst for quality job growth and increased capital investment in the state.

EDCUtah is a statewide economic development organization (EDO) specializing in corporate recruitment, economic research, site selector marketing, and community development. A partner of the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity (Go Utah) for corporate recruitment, EDCUtah is supported by state government, local governments, and organizations from the private sector.

EDCUtah is committed to providing a safe and respectful workplace where diversity, inclusion, and equality are highly valued among our staff, investors and clients. We value different experiences, ideas, perspectives and backgrounds and know that respect for the individual as well as diversity in all respects contributes to a stronger and more creative Utah.
