Forbes recently named us one of the country’s next big boomtowns. As one of the fastest-growing regions in the country with a population that’s expected to nearly double over the next 20 years, it’s no wonder.

This region has some of the best business schools and programs in the country, as well as one of the largest community college networks in the nation. It’s positioned between two of the country’s biggest economies in California and Texas, yet your operating costs could be nearly 40 percent less than in California. In fact, Greater Phoenix offers one of the best business climates in the nation. 
Our low business costs, minimal regulation, ample amount of business tax credits and other economic development programs, low cost of living and unparalleled quality of life make Greater Phoenix one of the most exciting metropolitans in North America. Additionally, it’s one of the best places to be new – you can quickly become ingrained in our community, climb the ranks and achieve career goals you’d never expect in other markets.
Greater Phoenix is already home to dozens of notable corporate and regional headquarters, including:
  • Avnet
  • Dial Corporation/Henkel
  • Fender
  • Freeport McMoRan
  • Go Daddy
