The Boise Valley is full of both established, thriving business sectors and new, emerging industries.  From food and agriculture and technology to manufacturing and shared resources, companies large and small call the Boise Valley home.  


And it's easy to see why.  Many of the advantages that led these companies to establish their home in the Boise Valley still exist here today:

  • Low cost of doing business and low cost of living
  • Pro-business climate that welcomes and supports you
  • An ample, highly trained workforce epitomized by a "can do" attitude
  • Extraordinary quality of life for attracting and retaining talent
  • An infrastructure of talent and expertise from a legacy of large corporate headquarters
With a population of 676,929 (2015 Estimate), there are more than 101,800 people employeed in professional services occupations.  One of the fastest growing regions in the country, the Boise MSA ranked #3 (excluding Florida) for the highest net domestic in-migration rate in 2014 behind Austin, TX and Charleston, SC.    Download a one-page overview of a recent study done on the Boise Metro.

Over 70% of the population has some college training or above (12.7% above the national average).  The Boise Valley is home to the fastest growing community college in the country, College of Western Idaho, which is currently servicing over 20,000 students.
