Monday, February 05, 2018
Goshen County, WY – The newly launched Goshen County Economic Development Corporation (GCEDC) website features powerful tools as well as resources for entrepreneurs, businesses, job seekers and site selectors. Visit http://www.goshenwyo.com/goshen-edc to access the site.
GCEDC is excited to have a website that serves as an authentic window into the region and a powerful resource for business. “We realized that the website is the face of our community and it was our priority to portray the look and feel of our community while accessing information helpful to business and community development,” said Ashley Harpstreith, chief executive officer.
The site has a robust array of modules with user-friendly navigation. Visitors can find comprehensive demographic data about Goshen County’s communities and an interactive tool (zoom prospector) for available sites and buildings. Current businesses can find tools under the Business Resources and Business Incentives tabs. The News and Media tab will help keep residents informed about current events.
The online tool also features information about quality of life and will serve as an entry point for existing businesses as well as prospective businesses and new residents considering locating Goshen County.
“We feel this dynamic website will be able to serve our current businesses and entrepreneurs but will also give site selectors and potential industries an idea of what it is like to do business in our big land of open opportunity,” said Harpstreith.
To create and design the online portal, GCEDC selected the national economic development communications firm Golden Shovel Agency.
