Leaders in the Community
Aurora’s strongest advocates
Leading the community
For more than four decades, our organization has been leading the charge for economic growth and prosperity in the City of Aurora, Adams County, and Arapahoe County. We are proud of those decades of blood, sweat, and tears because of the positive impact we have had on our community and region. But we continue to look forward. There are more companies to help. There are more catalysts to grow. And more transformational opportunities on the horizon.
Four decades of impact
Over the years, we’ve been a part of more local, regional, and state initiatives than we can count – game changers like the Gaylord Rockies, transformations like the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, major policy wins, and critical infrastructure improvements.
- We’ve created tens of thousands of primary jobs – more than 34,000 since 2001 alone.
- Our projects have had billions of dollars in associated capital investment in the community.
- By bringing in high-quality jobs we’ve positively impacted wage, delivering a 4.1% compound annual growth rate over the last five years alone.
- We’ve generated significant new tax revenue that has been reinvested into the community.
Our current focus
We are always on the hunt for the (right) next big thing. Keeping an eye on trends, understanding the market, and being bold about what we can achieve guide our direction. These are a few examples of projects that have our focus.
