About the Wyoming Business Council

Who We Are

The creation of the Wyoming Business Council in 1998 dramatically changed Wyoming's approach to economic development. Unlike the state's previous economic development efforts, this organization has a more corporate structure, incorporates private business practices in order to drive programs and has established regional offices throughout the state to better serve clients.

The state of Wyoming created the Wyoming Business Council to focus public and private efforts to build a strong job creation base in the new economy with manufacturing and technology as core competencies while strengthening the existing business and industry groups under alternative energy, agriculture, manufacturing, high tech, transportation and logistics.
