About Us

Since 1987, the Goshen County Economic Development Corporation has been working to create jobs and empower entrepreneurs.

Our nonprofit mission is “Cultivating boundless opportunity for business and community.”

Citizens and leaders of Goshen County are forward-thinking and supportive of our business development goals — our county was the first in Wyoming to approve a sales tax for economic development.

GCEDC’s work boosts the local economy, whether it’s by nourishing existing businesses toward success and growth or attracting new investments.

Goshen County Economic Development Corporation is a nonprofit organization, created in 1987 to create jobs, encourage business growth, and build on local community assets. GCEDC enjoys strong support from local business and industry, city and county government, and the citizens of Goshen County that were the first in Wyoming to approve a county sales tax for economic development.


The fundamental purpose of Goshen County Economic Development Corporation is to encourage job growth from primary employers that attract investment from outside the county to inject new dollars into the local economy.

The success of existing businesses is a top priority for Goshen County Economic Development Corporation.
