With charming residential areas, modern business parks, highly affluent and educated workforce and first-rate community college – just to name a few – the Santa Clarita Valley has much to offer. We adopt a targeted approach to reach the audiences that are key influencers in the decision chain: C-level executives, site selectors and brokers. We reach decision makers through a breadth of communications such as blogs, videos, social media, case studies, and brochures to highlight the various advantages SCV offers.

At the SCVEDC, we centralize existing economic information and publish additional studies, reports and data sets to meet the needs of businesses. The annual Economic Outlook event we jointly host with the College of the Canyons has become a premier business event for the movers and shakers in the Santa Clarita Valley. In addition, we publish quarterly Economic Snapshots.  Accurate, reliable and timely information is essential to business development.

SCVEDC Investors.

It takes people working in partnership to grow an economy. To keep pace with an ever-changing business climate, we must plan, be proactive and actively invest in our future. Each SCVEDC Board Member is an investor who contributes to the future of this community. The work of the SCVEDC today will have an impact on the economic landscape of the Santa Clarita Valley tomorrow and for decades to come.
