About Us

The Boise Valley Economic Partnership (BVEP) is driven by a partnership of communities, institutions, chamber organizations and businesses in the area. BVEP offers free, customized, confidential services and site location assistance to businesses and entrepreneurs interested in relocating, starting up, or expanding in the Boise Valley. We work to keep, grow and attract jobs for the region.

Why we do...
To ensure prosperity and forward momentum for our region
To create and support value-added jobs, diversification of jobs under rooftops, and investment in our community’s infrastructure and opportunities
To weather the inevitable next dip in the economy, and ensure people of all backgrounds and experiences have a variety of opportunities to improve their lives
To bring jobs to those who live here, and investment to the neighborhoods they call home
To broaden our industry base gives those who grew up here more reasons to stay; and for those who left, reasons to return home and continue their careers where they have roots
Because new and growing companies expand our tax base, contribute to our infrastructure, become part of our philanthropic ecosystem, and infuse our metro with energy, creativity and ideas
To build a foundation of resiliency for our metro - to preserve, expand and strengthen what we already have
