To enhance the economic vitality in Colorado's Grand Valley, creating a strong and diverse economy, and an improved quality of life.
The Grand Junction Economic Partnership (GJEP) was formed in 1984 to resuscitate the business community in Mesa County in the wake of an energy bust that left thousands without jobs. With a vision to create quality jobs and expand capital investment through the attraction, expansion and retention of primary business, GJEP has worked to recruit businesses in the healthcare, technology, aviation & aerospace, energy, agribusiness and outdoor recreation industries.
