welcome to

the New West

Colorado’s Grand Valley, nestled between the snow-capped Rockies and the stunning Moab desert, embraces western work ethic and new-age innovation, creating the New West, where small-town hospitality meets big city accessibility. Unlike the gold rushes of the past – the rush to the New West isn’t for gold. It’s for a slice of the flourishing economy, nation-leading labor supply, and housing you can actually afford.

Home of Grand Junction, Fruita, and Palisade, the Grand Valley is a place where talent, business opportunities, and an appreciation for the outdoors mark our past, live in our present and shape our future. The Grand Valley awaits companies bold enough to reach out and take it.

STAKE YOUR CLAIM IN THE NEW WEST.
