We welcome you to explore North Idaho with Coeur d'Alene Area Economic Development Corporation. Since 1987, over 125 companies have taken the opportunity to expand or relocate to the Coeur d’Alene, Idaho area. The strong and vibrant economic options of North Idaho are surpassed only by the quality and beauty that surrounds us.

I look forward to working with the Kootenai County communities to create that balance of taking care of our existing businesses, growing entrepreneurial activities, and recruiting new businesses to help diversify and strengthen our economy. Coeur d’Alene Area Economic Development Corporation has had a long and successful program, and I know that together we can create further success to give our region a brilliant and vibrant future.
